Ben Catmull/ Stanley McNail: Nobody Knows Where Mary Went

Frank T. Zumbachs Mysterious World

Ghosts-and-Runis1

Nobody knows where Mary went.

We only know she didn´t die.

Maybe she took her Angora cat

From the wicker chair where it always sat,

And packed her clothes, with their lavender scent,

And left – but she didn´t die.

Nobody saw her go away.

Nobody saw her leave the door.

Somehow – like a tintype, yellow with age,

Or a penciled scrawl on a crumbling page –

She faded in some anonymous way,

To be seen and heard no more.

Nobody knows why she doesn´t stir;

She hasn´t been seen about since fall.

But the curtains look fresh in her living room,

The hedges are clipped and the lilacs bloom.

Maybe she´d come if you called to her.

Maybe she never left at all.
