driving in the old town

& I thought I saw you

compensating some for age

distance sunlight in my eyes

slowed to see if it really was you

& the cars on the other side

got in the way of my fantasy

later wondering thinking

how would I be with you now?

could we ever just say hello

hi how are you & goodbye

talk delicately

of other new lives

& I don’t really know

how if I’d be with you there

whether hurt hate anger resentment

still linger or are gone

disappeared into the ether of time

or buried deep under layers of earth

created by not seeing you dust deposits

settled from the air to settle in corners

layering over whatever emotions lay there
