But I’m not there anymore. I left the palms behind.
Your hair, strands sitting lazily across your face. The smell of the BBQ, blurring the space between us as it becomes part of the summer heat.

You are too close for me to see clearly. But it’s best that way.
You’d fall back down to earth and adjust your glance to me. And whatever was there just moments before glazed over. You locked it away.
