tall poppies

there are days
like these
what would you say
If I told you
today on the bus
the train
pavement
I saw you
in the queue
waiting with such
solemnity
I don’t often see
it was all right
because there are days
I miss you
in every breath
all thoughts on you
each second a picture
without your face
if we could
ever meet
in a field of green
without tall poppies
you might
just
look at me again
and I might
just
breathe free
again
