Reunion Inesperada.

Reunion Inesperada. 18" x 22". graphite, conte, charcoal on paper. (Drwg # 31).

memory resurrected on a city street.

suddenly you in the evening crowd

calling my name.

I turn and a thousand faces

dissolve and disappear,

only you remain,

enveloped in shifting clouds of hair,

wild as a kiss of wind,

breathless from running

you were there again.

nothing more complex than this.

beneath stoical buttresses

of  grey cathedrals

a memory made tangible

in silk and velvet,

you,

more alive

than life itself,

you,

touching my rough coat

with a small, cold hand,

speaking my name,

your words wet birds

lifting from your lips

parting the rain,

and you were there again.

nothing more complex than this.
