____________________________This is the way you are thinking now –
I wear its familiar weight
As my fingers recall

____________________________The curve of your scapula,
____________________________Its habitual course.

We have not spoken in a while.
____________________________You’re busy
And so am I
In separate

____________________________Parts of the world.
Words are not that important
____________________________When you have home
____________________________Etched in the structure of bone.
When we speak it will be
Almost as unremarkable
As talking to my reflection in the mirror,
____________________________Save for the reassurance that
____________________________The cold glass is just an illusion
____________________________As your hand reaches out from

The other side of the screen.
