A close examination

of the scene

left no clues

that could be gleaned.

She has disappeared

without trace

like she had been

abducted into space.

No one has heard

from her in days

and she wasn’t

due any holidays.

Family and friends

are all distraught

while the police

check on every crackpot.

These stories rarely

have a happy ending,

but for their sakes

we keep pretending.
