Take the Mystery Train through Sentimental Journey
& shock still floods, a disinfectant
going right over rust.
Sure, the corrosion goes clean,
but isn’t there a burn?
We thought the tracks had been changed
& by our own hands.
We thought another show had closed curtains,
yet that last act was unfinished——
An old cabin, two days & what really occurred.
So flip back the calendar. There was
an unexpected guest.
You said. I said…while the unsaid swept new evidence in——
bottled letter, missing photo, voice over the phone.
That diagnosis was meantime, had a long hibernation
& neither of us knew what a body can house, pass.
Now there is light & those polished cedar windows
did pour love’s transmigrated soul down over tidal pools
where two beings splashed, held, innocent,
pleasure after pleasure, a devotion freshly pledged then,
then & there,
when health was no worry.
What we meant was that our ways would be altered,
& they were.
We grew different faces, stronger eyes, deeper touch.
We believed, were convinced, hard times, hatred,
must let our people go.
So if we meant it, truly felt the bond breathing
without an inkling of this——
Say, retrieve the lost weekend, meld that light
with this hour & bring your close arms,
your tender fire for what is to come, be it
sickness, but be it life
for we have absorbed, love,
will rise beyond, the unexpected ghost.
