"But now I am mostly at the window
watching the late afternoon light.
Back then it never fell so solemnly
against the side of my tree house,
and my bicycle never leaned against the garage
as it does today,
all the dark blue speed drained out of it."

Is the kind of word
You find spinning in the ceiling fan.

I miss you
Is hanging from the telephone receiver
And falling on the hardwood floor,
Caught underfoot or away in the pantry.

Is resting, sleepy, in the backseat of the car,
Or hidden away with the rest of her secrets in a basket of socks.

Is stuck in the shoebox under the bed,
already full of pictures from days a million lifetimes ago,

Is sometimes deep in the junk drawer
Or buried in the refrigerator, next to the broccoli and under the milk,
But often, it is sitting
In someone’s left rainboot.
