back and forth to forward and back
a wish-wash across a palindrome
we slid and dove deep into surfaceless adventures
while others skated on thin ice

loss left us
feeling empty and sad
like we’d finally had enough
disappointment in a shimmery blue sky gone cloudy
could be swept away again by
the knowing smile of an old friend
or the decadent taste of a newer one

expanse reigned as we contracted

overwhelming nonsense can make
giddy girls giggle on a stoop
and when remembrances are long forgotten
we will always have these nights together
