artless.

he found her
quick to frustrate him
yet easy to distract
with bored stories
of far off ventures
scandal and petty infringements
the simple existence
that repelled
and attracted
him all at once

reluctance for details
passive and artless
had he ever met
someone so naive
and aspirationally so
the trite detail
and conspiring charms
draw a stark
and harsh comparison to
the old, warm and dark embrace
