& she was

one of those women

who will do anything for you

but you can never quite touch

find your way into

not remote

not stand offish

just never quite there

present but away somewhere

responsive though I felt

her agenda lay elsewhere

& to ask outright

what do you want?

is an affront

expectations being

if she did not want to be here

then she wouldn’t
