The Melancholy Lover’s Rant 

The Melancholy Lover’s Rant 

What is memory but artifice?
Schwärmerei in family albums.
Solitaire’s looped golden glint, in velvet, 
Nestled. A gift thrust carelessly; 

Gestures to blur boundaries of despair.
Else, memory’s love gone awry? A refrain, 
Oft, repeated by Love’s flushed roses:
Love’s transience pressed betwixt pages.
