Echoes of memories rush back to me
like a stream of cool water and
when you speak, ghosts of feelings swim around
in my mind, so deep that they probe places I
didn’t even know existed in my body,
like this is me remembering who you are,
not getting to know you.
I once read that we are 93% star stuff so maybe
the calcium in our bones is from the same star.
That would explain why all 206 bones in my body
are lit on fire when I see you
like I’m aching to be whole again.
Outside of time
the entire universe exists in the crook of your elbow
