X-rays

Iโ€™m amidst a birthday conversation,
with six people talking at the same time,
words leapfrog through the living filled with smoke,
exploding in laughter. I lost track somewhere
between the price of fuel and the weather.

Then, out of the blue and cigaret fumes
you enter. So we are back together,
miles apart. Your eyes hardly remember.
Photos are taken, the flashlight X-rays
prove I’m with strangers now. I should have known.

  1. Seeing is all telling especially the eyes

  2. I love that line, I lost track somewhere between the price of fuel and the weather. It brings the entire party into focus. A broad stroke with such a precise result, and it sets up that more personal second stanza nicely.

    • Hi David, thank you very much ๐Ÿ™‚ Those conversations always have something absurd, if you try to follow all of them at the same time! ๐Ÿ™‚
