Description (in English): 

This poem is built over the song “Don’t Know Why” by Norah Jones, and takes its time doing so, with opening dedications, a slow-paced delivery of the poetic lines, and even some playful credits at the end. The poem’s linguistic text focuses on words used to denote possibilities, missed opportunities, second chances to create a tone similar to the last few sections of “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” but using language more fitting of “Anyone Lived in a Pretty How Town.” The lyrics in Norah Jones’ song enhance the melancholy tone, as well as the images of dusk turning into night and a flower losing its petals. So savor this unhurried poem and lose yourself for contemplation of its details, if only for the space of a song.
