Glad to hear life is good. Nice work with the short poem, it's a good way to make sure you can check the box next to "subtle" on your writing checklist. The ending works nice, it's one of the things I love about your poetry, how you paint obscurity and then caption it with one closing line.
Thank you for sharing this with us, Ri... and thank you for never giving up on poetry.
Faith is a fine invention
When gentlemen can see
But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.
