I know her so well.


I built this woman carefully:
I constructed her piece by piece.
But when she turned and looked at me:

I didn't know her face.

Too many corner pieces,
Edges out of place.
I can't find the middle.

I re-fit the pieces.

It's still the same.

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
