what i try remembering

in my mind, a gallery
of windows, sun melting
across glass. i track

differences: hair grown
past your ear, fingertips heavier
on shoulder blades. to share

moments apart, i beg
to trade geographies, scavenge
for details to keep.

my hands recall your body:
an extra scar on your forearm, the peeling
of skin from another sun. yet

there is too much to say, and so i leave
it to rain, light condensed
on windowpanes.
