The Hole in the Hug

I can mostly buy
the whole spiritual thing
that she is neither dead nor gone

or at a perfect time
and to a perfect place

But there is
this hole in a hug
where she used to fit

For Patricia Fiske – Copper today and gold forever – and for everyone who fits into your empty hugs.
