Poetry Train Monday - 121 - She Had Found Places



Here is a second found poem which I've crafted from the prose of Jonathan Safran Foer's Everything is Illuminated.


She Had Found Places


"There," she said
And she pointed her finger
Into the darkness

She was not crying
Which surprised me very much
But I understand now
That she had found places
For her melancholy
That were behind more masks
Than only her eyes

- Jonathan Safran Foer, 2002
