He lives in her wallet, face out of focus,
Single frame sliced from a photo booth strip.
They met in a library book
OF LOVE AND OTHER DEMONS
Hair electrified by lightning
Eyes on fire from dreams of volcanoes
Mouth sweetened on untold lies.
Men have lusted after and loved her.
She forgets each and every one
Obsessively pulling out the lone photo
Searching for the unknown man
The only one that she wants.
