l’appel du vide

If there is something to desire,
there will be something to regret.
If there is something to regret,
there will be something to recall.
If there is something to recall,
there was nothing to regret.
If there was nothing to regret,
there was nothing to desire.
–Vera Pavlova

What we carry
is a result
of not knowing
what the day will bring.

As her legs lifted
and separated
to step up
onto the sidewalk,
he took a deep bite
into a pastry
ashamed
as if he had taken
what was not his.
