Distance cannot be bridged with an image
Days apart are not removed with a phone call

To be estranged is to be almost

So we make little shrines
on bulletin boards in the kitchen,
Attached to refrigerators with Real estate company magnets

photos of timespent- time remembered -time cherished

They are snapshots of the moment--only a glimpse of what we recall - a blurred memory
The smell of burning leaves can bring back an entire semester-
A single song can remind me us of an entire day
an echo
of steps retraced.
