The Streets You Remember

This is for her
Lessons, graces
And the way she changed me
One summer morning
When I tried to use words
Instead of wisdom
And how she looked away
Knowing better than I did
What yes could mean
And saving us both
With her perfect caution

This is how sunlight
Across a bathrobed body
To a sixteen year old boy
Feels like dying
The way I could feel then
Too much and too fast
And always that way with her
How even now
Years later
I can still feel lost
But never forgotten
In daylight dreams
