This post is part of an ongoing series I can’t seem to resist, inspired by posts on online message boards.
You were at Home Depot, wanting to talk. You were turning around at the marina, and I was passing toward the end of the dock.
You were helping at a thrift store near the train station. You were seen later, camping near a picnic table at the Park ‘N Ride, and then you were gone. Where are you staying now?
You were at the bakery, the swap meet, at Major Market on Broadway.
You were my friend, my lunch partner, my gym buddy. You made me smile. I have missed you.
We miss so much, don’t we? Going about these daily tasks, getting dog food, gas, and BAM! A sighting, and it’s you again, isn’t it? Peeling back the veil of the world I think I know, when you arrive, and just as quickly, go.
