some nights

February 18, 2007

I think I saw you in a picture:
you were standing so still, and I fear
I might have interrupted you
on some journey. Did you jump out at me?
Or were you pulled? They told me
that the restorers couldn’t
save you, just the street
you walked down. Some nights
we painted that whole town.
