“Settings” – a Poem by Eleanor Rigby

“I was mislaid,”
Eleanor Rigby said,
“Amused
at my own voice.”

She sat and sat and sat,
but instead of growing tired,
wrote:
“This poem I write
is for Me only.
Signed,
Miss Understanding.”

She didn’t know
all alone poems
find a reader
sitting,
darning & clicking,
long through the night.

Eleanor Rigby
thought she was writing
only for you.

When suddenly, strings
opened up the sky,
a quartet of likes,
and an aeolian
comment
trilled and thrilled
the air.
