Now you see her, now you don’t

parting_shot

She is leaving again
In a few days
For a few months
And that familiar roiling begins
At her impending absence

Leaving a void
I will try to fill
With this and that
With chit and chat
With Kit and Kat
That just can’t

And that mad mechanism
Which tries to dull her departure
By stirring up a stir stirs
Stay down, fool

Slow burn in my belly
Lapping away
Persistent wee waves
Here to stay a while
Unwelcome guest
But stick around

Now you see her
Now you don’t

Deal with it
