Kissing In The Dark


I write our names
on opposite pages

of an out-of-date

I scrawl myself
on JULY 27th 1986.

I scribble you
on JULY 27th of

that self same year.

It is now
JULY 27th 2012.

We exist...so:
in a time that is no longer

no longer exists.

We are the only words
on our respective pages

as if we were the only
happenings those days

as I close
the book on us

the words of us

each other
word to word

until the last lower case 'e'
of you

fits into the first
capital 'D' of me

like the soft sigh
of a clasp

the syllables of us
kissing in the dark.
