A Look

Some days it takes a lot to stir
The settled feelings in my heart.
Some days it takes only a look:
A look that tells me, “Yes, she knows.
She knows the fissures of her heart.
She knows the ants that make it home.
She knows the rains that clump the grain.
She knows she can be on her own.
And though she knows the hefty price,
She knows she’ll promptly pay it twice.”
