Euclid

























Separation


You absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its colour.

W.S. Merwin (b. 1927)
from New Poems on the Underground

I like that poem!

It is perhaps one of my absolute favorites. It is bittersweet and the reference to the stitching strikes a personal chord.
