Will He Know?

She wondered
as she tapped the frame slightly askew
replaced the dirty coffee mug on his Chilewich placemat
shuffled the mail so her bill was on top
and turned their bathroom faucet handle just enough
to let the water drip in slow motion,
will he know she’s still with him,
not quite yet a fully embodied angel
in that other world?

Written from a writing prompt in my June Challenge Course: write within a constraint, IE a one sentence poem.

      Thanks much! “bittersweet” is a good word for it. I’ve always loved that word….
