the crowded room

disappeared

when we started

talking,

laughing;

conversation so easy,

it felt like breathing,

where i didn’t even

think about any of it –

it just happened.

i want that again.

it should be a crime

not to explore it

even

if it was only a brief moment;

you still owe me

that glass of wine,

and that plate of pasta,

after an oyster appetizer,

and

after the oyster-shot aperitif;

lest i forget,

you promised we’d meet.
