there was always something between us

a locked screen

the highway of a thousand miles

the slamming door

one of your intangible smiles

one morning in the garden i watched you through the window

you were sitting in my chair in the living room

i watched you as you scrolled on your phone

your brow was furrowed and intent

searching for something to make sense of the news

the bright morning sun illuminating your face

you didn’t see me through the glare

i took a photo of you then

to remember you like that

in the moment beautiful and ineffable

a snapshot of a normal life

with only a pane of glass between us
