you are still a proposal
left dangling loose, often forgotten
you are caught by
a springtime afternoon

and here I am

you are light filtering
through this untidy room
there are remnants of you
in hours I lie awake

reinventing an existence
recapitulating the movements
of shadows
reevaluating it all, again

you are a fiber in this sweater
a flitting smear of red in the bushes
outside of this window,
always outside

and here I am,
here I am

ice melted, a pool
at the bottom of my glass
