he was not looking but
….. she was not an apparition
….. at the center of the room
….. loving him
she was standing but
….. being there in that spot
….. precisely there,
….. not on the moon, say,

….. toward eternity (though
….. that wind always blew) he knew she

….. we love and hate
….. in places we stand
….. practicing all in freedom
….. or not yet
he knew
