Close Call 

bobbed my hair
you liked it long

pulled on baggy jeans
you wanted them tight

left off my lipstick
'letting myself go,' in your sight

wanted to talk about us
you said too much to ask

tried to let my arms warm
you froze me out instead

thought you needed me
but you needed you

once we fit together
now a puzzle torn apart

once a matched set
now the parts marred

today I decided to release you was a close call.

Australian artist Jack Meredith's work
shines, whatever he offers us. His work has graced my pages before. Thank you, Jack!
