A Momentary Lapse

How can one leave somewhere
they’ve never been?
And how can a conversation end
that’s never began?
When in the opening statement,
one feels and is so moved
as is to abandon
all possible disappointment
in a momentary lapse,
when we find ourselves face to face.
And it was there, wasn’t it?
that all words failed us.
And in what disbelief my eyes
met yours – and thrice! The first time,
in a sea of faces, the second,
face to face, and the third, in a
rearview mirror looking backwards.
