My Fascination with Her Is Enormous and Intricate
In the glassed-in alcove, as I walk briskly past the café in the winter cold, she looks up from her change, a flash of dark azure in the ghostly light of the luminous bleak late morning, her coffee steaming, her serenity and assurance like my own, a tired wistfulness for what had promised so much and is now lost in the afterglow, disappeared into the distance where the misty sunlight leads us.
