    Neverwhen

    There is something
    thrilling
    and hesitant
    and slightly
    off-centered
    tender
    in the act of saying:

    I know you;
    at least, I think I do.

    I think my heart has met yours before,
    on some excursion
    into the neverwhen
    and everywhere.

    There is some sign,
    some sudden
    recognition –
    a falling into
    place.

    And time
    cannot deny
    or conceal
    the stutterstep
    and stammer
    of our knowingness.

    We have collided
    somewhen,
    neverwhere,
    and burst into
    ribbons of delight
    and danced.

    And it has just been
    until now,
    this very moment,
    that we have caught
    each other’s eye
    enough to remember
    that
    I know you,
    and have met your heart
    before.

      This will forever be my favorite work of yours — or ANYBODYS! It’s just so perfect. I know, and am convinced, we have been friends for a very long time.
