Poet Girl Em

reflection in the fogged
over bathroom mirror
hot shower steaming
her tender skin red
she fantasizes
of a man who doesn’t exist
and briefly
for a breath
she felt him
her tears evaporated
like tropical rain
never to be seen again
— like the man she imagined
a ghost of a future
a premonition of a never
a figment of a past present
a desire for everything
she wanted to feel
but never felt
as reality cleared in the mirror
she saw her body
beauty aging like fine wine, yet
no one to raise her glass with
