Thirteen days
post initial encounter
I started waking upIMG_0688
again
at 3am. Every morning,
a quiet hour of yoga
and Rachmaninov.
A few twirls. Chai.
Poetry. Here
and there.
F[o(u)r] hours
later I was
at board tables and
you were fixing
the world
and both of us
wondered how some
things cannot be seen
ever
any
sooner.
