She’s what you missed when you thought you saw something striking in a crowd, in the corner of your eye. She’s the word you couldn’t think of to complete an important thought before the moment passed. She’s what you were looking for in every woman who rejected you. She has posed for only a moment in the studios of great artists as their best ideas leaped from their brushes. She’s haunted your memory with the smells of paradise and the colors of heaven.
