‘does this mean something?’
we both stood and watched
as the gulls frenzied over the sea
becoming one head, one beak.

both in our winter coats
it was a gentle day
time didn’t matter,
we stood and watched them
silently.

‘do you remember when we stood
here, as strangers, with no heat exchange
and no idea of the future?’

it was true, I had been busy
eyes were distracted
hands full of flowers,
a bag of fossils; notes.

something about that day reminds me
I grew wings, briefly
fledged and became new.

it was the smell of you
it soaked into the grain
and left me weakened
yet stronger.

‘are you listening to me, did you see that?’
and the glimmer died down
the day was sunk by my heavy heart.
