wire mesh

In the pockets of her jacket
I find a button, also
piece of yellowed paper, blank.
I button it again, a blue one.

a star formed in her pocket when he got lost

Gautami,

The way the lines are laid out adds mystery to the 'why' and the need to color things the way they get colored. There's a throb of significance because of that.
