The dearness

Closeness, at this moment, denied
in this full stop, this frozen frame
I taste the tongue of these airs
I breathe the lung of its layers

This painting, one of my prayers

I do want you.
Stay a moment.
But, wait a moment longer.
You know me.

Drawing by David Hayward, entitled “Solitary”
