Introvert Poem #1

 

You have to get the timing right

between going

                               and

                                      gone.

Say goodbye, and then step in for

the hug

opening your arms

(to

.           .enfold.)

But if they move away

    just before

or dig for their keys

the moment is

.                           gone.

And then what can you do?

.     (ask

.     for a

.     hug?)

.          No,

.     you go

without.
