re-meet

she re-enters
from time to time
for milliseconds

she comes,
embraces me with
a friendly kiss on the cheek,
a polite hello,
a comment on how different I look.

there is a
friendly recognition
in our eyes

the guarded kind
of warmth of
old lovers who
parted badly

i want to
know what is
there, now,

is there
anything
there

in that
embrace

is there a
moment
of forgetting
the love
is over?

it happens,
yes, it happens
sometimes

one-sided or
mutual

it happens,
i’m sure,

it happens,
i know.
