L’inexplicable By Matt Dennison

L'inexplicable

“Why don't you write about me!”
she wailed from the bed as he sat
before his desk, lost in reverie.

Without looking up, he replied:
“My dear, it is true, you are
the million-dollar beast —

deserving of a novel, at least!
But she—my beggar, my gypsy,
my thief—was priceless.”
