extending a hand

for a body not there,

a person

you thought you left behind

but, in sleep, forgot..

snapping awake,

heart speeds

until you find ground again,

the flicker of light-

even in

gone

beauty arrives.

laughter sweeps the dusty doorway

for friendly toes-

yours definitely,

another’s,

maybe.

either way, the path

is clean and clear
