Jane

Her favorite film was ‘Out of Africa’.

Oh?

I had misunderstood her

Her caustic manner

Her cantankerous demeanor

She had frightened me

Once.

But those three words changed all that

Insane Jane was misunderstood

Oh she was still a bitch

I couldn’t escape that fact

But one whose appreciation of subtle longing, a need for belonging

Meant she must be more than just snarl and gnarl

More than the angry sighs her tapping hands evoked

More than an office joke.

There was a pearl in there somewhere

Inside that shell

Within the creature who gave us hell.
