here is now

she’s a longtime friend.
who’ll be there in a heartbeat,
once she gets the call.

your long-lost sister
full of advice and laughter:
who knows you so well.

once upon a face
when we met, before email:
voices on the phone

two lives connecting
old-fashioned, memories shared:
practical magic.

navigation: on,
the highway is still open.
despite the distance

you’re still thick as thieves.
you can’t imagine a time
when you may not be.

life, flash in the pan.
Hiroshima strikes, one word:
the world’s upside down.

shoulder wet with tears
she hides her own as you cry
and hugs you tighter.

what was it we said?
we will be invincible,
and forever young.
