playing it safe


i remember seeing my beloved
in the rain in november
by the book store
wearing those jeans and that smile

a new tatoo on his still warm skin
it was black and red
that was all i could see
from where i sat in silence

he juggled his purchases
from one hand to the other
sliding his hand through his hair
looking around for me, perhaps

i traced my finger down the glass
watching him move down the street
and wondered to myself if i
would ever meet him face to face
