Old Year's Eve

Supper and
we sat
four of us
but this one
watched

faces and food and a fantasy
of having you here where
rarely we have been
together

for many years

You rode every syllable and said I know
you

This is old night as they say in Spanish
and you are old and gone and I miss you

So I put all your plates all the ones
I could find on the table
and invited you
to come

and be where you were
wanted

This is what I learned from you
