“Sometimes I miss you
the way someone drowning
remembers the air.”
Tim Seibles

“Some days I can go nearly an hour
without thinking of the taste
of your mouth.”
Tim Seibles, Hurdy-Gurdy

“And if
the air is chilly
she feels it - in fact, if you
put your hand on her arm
you would know she still remembers
how touching changed the weather,
how a hand skimming the wrist
was once a window
opening onto a better season
where people did better things
than be lonely, where the wind
was a river of candlelight
pushing the blue silhouettes of trees.”
Tim Seibles, Hurdy-Gurdy
