DOWRY

The world is wily and doesn’t want to be caught.                                                                                       Susan Mitchell

I tell you
I am searching for poetry
for you. That I have not found it.
That I am horribly, horribly afraid that I will have to write it.
I say it casually, teasingly—

oh, my goodness, what an awful fate, writing poetry for you.
