In between heartbeats, you may hear me — hello.
When you feel my breath in autumn air, from
the crack beneath the door, you’ll know — the
touch on your shoulder. Maybe there’s some other
explanation, still you just can’t shake it. Side
against the crazy ones. Swear I don’t exist. I
will still sit and watch you sleeping. You must
feel my lips in the bend of your elbows — I have
kissed you there a thousand times. I have called
your name to the walls, felt you flinch. Proof in a
breathless moment (It’s been at least a thousand
since you said goodbye.) I’ll be back as many times.
