Now

Now I watch as if I am living
in
a moment of suspension, a madness
creeping by on cat feet,
on
the edge of awareness
I watch her
walk away and felt
my blood cool inside of
me
felt the street beneath
my feet
the air against my
skin
and sadness
blanket the noises around me
until I heard
nothing…felt
nothing
and I realized
that
I was happy to once have had
something so amazing
to lose;
the places where her face filled memories
her smile, eyes that
looked back at me
briefly
too, too briefly
as the dinner hour rushed by
as
she became and at once went
into a past cluttered
with meaningless and thoroughly abstract
echoes of a before
before
there was a
now.
