What was it in understanding

That didn’t look like universe

Or sound like spring

Beside the still waves of sparkling sadness

Where I traced again your smile on the window

A fogless shimmer of silly incantation?

Perhaps you’ve forgotten

Or perhaps there was no perhaps

And it was a list of intentions

That made my sentences hang themselves

From empty silver-needled boughs.

You look like the air

And I look like the breath

As it freezes only to be

Mist once more.
