all it would take

all it would take p91_opt.jpg

his need became
a leak that would not scar over,
etched into old trees
reminders of what
This world can’t stop

all words, including title, from page 91 of Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. poem #83 of the First 100 Days series, and poem #12 for National Poetry Month.
