Mull (An Absence)
Mull liked to mull so he mulled
day in, day out
answer in the bottom of an empty glass: mull
fly on the screen: mull.
Mull met an unexpected girl
fell out of mull and into love
what he didn't know: the girl
loved to mull, not Mull.
Mull lost the girl to a man who mulled
and when he asked her to think it over
she said, "What's to think about?"
Now Mull had to mull so he mulled
day in, day out.
