Alphabet City

chagall backdrop

She said
It’s just up ahead
keep coming!

then
she was gone

around the turn

a chorus of voices
faint but not
far away

more like color
than sound

paints a mist
I cannot gather

how quiet
her exit

all form
is shattered

how delicate
the ties that bind

how quickly before
we can say

the kiss
lingered
