Kathleen Stewart, "The Perfectly Ordinary Life" (page 10 of 11)

The Perfectly Ordinary Life

A taste for the miniature, a passion for secrets,
a place where desires float free.
Life seized in the sidelong glance.
And in that glance, the glimpse of something brooding,
   inexplicable, beautiful.
The hunch that everything might become clear if we just keep
   watching for the faces in the trees.
