Gathering

pretend belonging

watch for signs of genuine affection

play the game,

be the same,

absorbing affectations

whispered longings

Gathering

connection.

poem-familiar face October 30, 2017

You look familiar,

I said.

Where do I know you from?

We listed things we do,

things we did,

places we go,

people we know.

Nothing in common.

It was weeks later,

I saw you through the crowd,

and realized I’d seen you in my mirror

forty years ago.
