Mary
J. M. Strother

I did not know her well
Old, but far from frail
Known in passing only
For months
Years

We shook hands once
Exchanged introductions
Mary
That’s all
Only a name

Yet somehow a foundation
A name bond
Roots
In an often hectic world

It’s three months now
Since last I’ve seen her
Disappointment
Vague worry

How I wish I had come to know you better
Mary
