Afterwards

still warm
crumpled sheets
your smell
wafting

jazz tunes
softly humming
your taste
lingering

cozy blankets
snuggling deeper
I lay
wondering

Yesterday

I saw you standing there
yesterday on the corner
collar up
hunched stiffly against the howling wind
whipping through trees
pulling at your hair
shiny black

I saw you standing there
yesterday waiting for me
patiently toe tapping
traffic passing by busily preoccupied
secure in pre-ordained destinations

I saw you standing there
yesterday

and abruptly turned away
