Contributor Series 4: Aspects of the Elephant
By John Sherer

Her face is gone

She is pulchritude
Short, slender, light
Short hair, wide eyes

Her face is gone

I once knew it
I once did not know her

Here I sit
As I try to recall
And all that comes
Is who she is

Who she is
Is not a face
She is inside
The gone, embraced

John Sherer’s poems Veer and Incandescence have appeared at vox poetica in 2009.

  1. Sometimes it’s hard to remember the face. But if you can hold on to the memories, it’s okay.
