Meet You Running – a poem by Judy DeCroce

Meet You Running

I am thirty or eighty
asleep, awake, the same,

sliding around a slippery joinery
where dreams occlude phases of
my life.

a child…
a love…
a death…

Here I am without pain
squinting to a sandy ocean…
beside us, a dog smiles.

I flip through events, years.

there is not even you, till I close my eyes
     and meet you running.
