Anna Karenina and Lolita meet in secret
comparing their experiences with men
asking Mrs. Dalloway to join them
Let’s go and drink dark beer
with one leg swinging on top of the other
in a dim café
Let’s share stories
confide in one another with such abandon
that remorse takes over the next day
an urge to crawl into the bookshelf
to forget what never was
sentences that were never said
just a timid whisper delicate dream
a phone call cut off
