Leaf of litmus

Once,

I peeled back a peekaboo page,

thinking to find what lay beneath-

some lines writ in a flowing hand

that only I would understand.

But that leaf,

so soft and supple,

had done its unkind blot,

and what was inked so deeply

had faded from my thought.

A litmus for lost love.
