said and gone

said and gone 101_opt.jpg
the never-said, said
that sliding smile, gone
pretty simple
all attention back to the next line
it’s over

all words, including title, from page 101 of Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. poem #90 of the First 100 Days series, and poem #19 for National Poetry Month.
