Warm California breeze blows through my hair
I am lucid
the sun a yolk of heat in a summer sky
I remember you once, pale blue eyes beside me
in another world, another time.
That day we were immortal
I forgive the past in this moment
yesterday was all risk & prayer
the test of limits in time-capsule memory
We were just curious, key in palm
life was that unopened door…
back then, like lizards on that hot rock in the sun
we had neither halo nor horn.
