Future lovers hide/Love inside their eyes

by Amy Turn Sharp



old passports fell from the brown crinkled envelope this morning as I pulled it from the top of the fridge
Blaise needs a passport and mine is expired
passport time stand in the line

Me and Joe were looking at them with wide eyes
OMG look how young/you have hair/and I have a curling iron obviously

Would these two people have found each other back then
before they knew each other?
I was in London the same time Joe was living there.
Could we have walked across the same street one cold wet night?
Could we have locked eyes at least once before
perfecting that instant love affair stare
across a crowded someplace?
Could I have seen the back of his head on a train?
Who knows.
Isn't it fun to wonder about yr life and perplex yrself with the mystery that constantly loops?
