like a fever dream,
fading away
like the light
through the screen door
on the sun porch.

the camera zooms out,
wider and wider
faster and faster.
the focus pulls backwards
and travels at speed.
the soundtrack changes abruptly, loudly.

and now:
six thousand miles away
different air to breathe.

I cannot recall your smile.

(2012)
