Memory

 I can only work from
Memory,
Distant bits and pieces.
Your hair
Tumbling over your eyes,
Thick, black tendrils
Carelessly tossed.
Your body
Slumped,
A little sleepy,
Your shirt
Tucked in quick and sloppy,
As you watched
Some misdemeanor drama unfold
In the street.

The side of your face,
Half lit
In some dingy concrete bunker.
Even your earring played against type,
A chunk of gold, a 1940s replica
A blessing.

 Did the gleam in your eyes
Remind me of someone
I once loved?
Or did it belong to you alone,
A pariah from the heartland
Shining through,
created from your own demons?

 So brief the tease.
To simply glance
At an unfettered bit of your chest.
A peek at what I’ve yet to have
What I savor
Every night in my dreams.
