A woman's longing for love, shown by refusal of gifts, and collecting of empty vessels.


A house she built,

nested inside

the one they bought.

It's been long in its building,

with slow accretions

wrung from unshed tears.

A desperation. A resignation.

It has gift boxes, unwanted.

Empty bowls and jars

on brazen display,

meant to catch a beautiful rain

that never came.
