I knew that tune

I could hear

the piano music playing

slow soft descant

in the background

if not the tune

which is unusual

if you’re outdoors

by a lake


these moments

would be gone forever


so I drank them in

to a starving man

fragments froth

taste like nectar

while waiting

for the words

to be said

& when that was over

trust me

I knew that tune
