Sometimes, I wonder how far we are from someone’s thoughts? And are they excited about the thought of us as we are about them? It’s just a thought, a kind and generous reflection….

I am far from your thoughts,
in the instances, in between
and there, what traffic
sprawled across the freeway;
I place my thumbs up and
hope to hitch a ride at
the back of your mind–
and will you mind really
if I occupy that tiny
space in your memory to
have you, suddenly, caught
off guard, surprised
by the persistence, however
steadfast I have latched
on, to stay present
before you (on the contrary
if you asked how much further?)
I am close to you,
closer than the stars and
skies from your eyes
