pearls of wisdom

she could wait
nearly motionless
for the perfect moment
to remind you
of how long it took her
to string those pearls together

deciding for you
rank of importance
order of events

choosing when
you should
be battered by a surge and
how to properly float
afterward

gifting
a strand of tears that
goes so well
with any
occasion

which is why it is never
left hanging by the mirror
when you take
your reflection down
and wait by the door

thinking about
the fit of shoes
depth of embrace
