A lot of people feel this way: A lot of people feel this way at least once, unless they have never loved. Your poem doesn't just talk about this but makes the reader feel it and therefore relate to it. Beautiful

You chose for your first line: You chose for your first line the very strong verb, "filches."  A lesser poet would have have used "steals."  You chose the immediate present tense with a strong verb---bravo!  Brief lines remind us of the brief moments that, in sum, do all the filching of our lives, one moment after another; long, attenuated, sloggish lines would have sounded more casual, less emergent against us.  You chose some great strategy in the deployment of this poem.  I applaud it.

Investors bet on: Investors bet on futures---oil futures, crop futures, I have even heard of pork futures.  But I am betting, with not a dime to my name, on Patriciajj poems futures.  I remember, at school, reading about Samuel French Morse's often expressed belief in the recognition that Wallace Stevens' poems would bring.  He had to wait a bit for Eliot's star to set, and then people began to realize that Stevens was the superior poet.  Now, he is an industry for the academics, and a refreshing oasis for those who truly love poetry.  Your work will follow a similar, but faster, curve, as you do not have to worry about Old Possum's star.  I know of scholars who have envied Sam Morse's perceptive belief.  And, futute scholars can envy me that I got to watch you build the great collection.

And thanks for the reply. : And thanks for the reply.  Postpoems has fulfilled two of my long-held dreams:  to have a place to publish my poems, and to see a Poet of Greatness at work, to see a towering collection emerge before my eyes---like a stop-motion record of star formation in a nebula.  I will applaud you as long as I have applause in me.
