I remember

I remember

 

That one once you were real
but not the world.
Your hand lay next to the empty cup.
I floated in a surreal dream
but it was real, your hand. I could simply have
shifted
a tiny bit
then, calloused and hewn with vitreous time
the soft under-flesh of yours
would have been on mine and
but I didn’t.
The coffee shop was full of people
and my life with reality
where dreams push in like climate change
unwanted, unstoppable, overwhelming
and things can never be the same.

A simple poem about meeting up with your first love, or an old lover. I was honoured that it was selected for the table decorations for the Sisterhood exhibition at The Studio Art Gallery in Ballito.
