inner and outer

(it all sounds just the same)

once bright, bright haze—

memories do you visit—-

as often as I?

and and and

(saw, glimpse, often)

drops of water—

grains of time

and light that once sat

on your shoulder

(and I try)

when was once so bright bright?

notes far away,

turned down—

(your smile)

but not your eyes—

and I fervent

notes—

of drops,

grains of time

once once once

(now we are not)

saw, blinked,

outer outer—

but I still miss (inside)
