Wistful, the belonging part of remember,
the kiss and the Greyhound
sighing closed, leaving town.

Wistful, the silent film
with Fond Regret and Pining For.

The petal-hand of goodbye
from a ship forever sliding 
decades away.

Wistful, silence is your publisher
and the vitreous pour of the moon.

Wistful, splinter-skinny,
you hardly eat a thing in your Empire dress,
disconsolate hair pin, Victorian knife—
you keep a dull shine like a scar
