I Keep Wondering

Tomorrow you’ll travel
to the other side of the world.
I can’t fall asleep wondering
whether you’d have stayed
if I asked

At The Cafe

When I saw you
at the corner table in the cafe
fiddling with the carnation in the vase,
you looked like the refrain of a song
that someone lost & I’ve found.
Perhaps my heart’ll gather you
line by line.
I’ll dig out the rhythm
as you sit
avoiding my gaze.
