    Requiem
    headphones in.

    the whole bus ride, staring
    out windows and seeing
    only
    cars, falling snow, people.

    the world according to this one song.
    it wasn't the sound of belching
    exhaust pipes,
    acceleration.

    i walked in the gently falling snow that night.
    my foot steps, small.
    slide, lift, press. slide, lift, step.
    each one unsure, hopefully decided.
    they walk next to another's.
    who you were i do not know.

    but later on,
    if someone passes the way we did,
    they might think we walked together.
    the way my steps traced around yours.
    woven, like the head upon my head,
    circled with and without thought:
    i ended up just walking side by side them.

    i didn't want you to feel alone, i
    didn't want to be
    alone.

    strange, and sad.
    i feel closer to a pair of
    size 9 bootprints,
    listening to soft acoustic rhythms telling
    me "they will see us waving from such great heights".

    i feel closer,
    than i might have been,
    had you actually been there.
