I Mean This in the Kindest Possible Way (But)
You took me with you when you left
I can't forgive you for that
(While I'm still here)

I checked the author bio in the book, and, yes, Vermont.

lovely

That's a sweet, sad little poem. Makes me very curious about the book, too.

I love coincidence and good timing.

The fact that you posted a comment at my blog at the exact same moment I posted at your comment doesn't surprise me in the least.
