       for sfc

Ghosts of men cannot be understood

but I fill up the room with thoughts of you.

The otherness of the past, the present renewed

in delicate anticipation of detoxified consequence.

My soul’s rest, my back to work happy,

my inclusive warm day of physical generosity.

Drinks or dinner together in time, in transit.

Then a glimpse of gorgeous illumination.

A fantasy of detail escapes into the bedroom walls

while our future continues to dream us up.
