eat ham sandwiches with little gherkin fingers

I miss us.

Would you still do that

thing which always revived
the in-between time

if we were
laughing or just loving

or if it was for the sake
of something else or just for the sake'

it would be quiet and then you'd do it
and color would dust back

onto our laughs
or into them.

You'll name some wonderful song
which will remind

me that there are
figs and rye bread and stilton and ham.

You'll ask, Does anyone remember sandwiches?
If so, do you miss me?

Let us eat, Amen.
