missing it

she turns away again

and he retreats

she calls

and he can’t talk

she asks

and he doesn’t hear

he gestures

but she doesn’t see

he offers

but she is distracted

he speaks

but the wind carries his words away

they love

by different means

Screenshot (181)

each gives

but neither receive

both stay

because both believe

and both know

they’re in the same boat
