Lucky People

Knowing we were not there
and missed what happened

is the one thing we really share
All of those rooms that

neither of us ever occupied
and the acquaintances we have not made

are the figures making it possible
to live together

And there always was a fertile time
once when conversations overflowed

untrapped from the body of words
when pictures drew whole flourishes

when someone’s touch promised more glow
than you could get in the palm of your hand
