I Know You

Across a plateau of sloping grass
where shadows lean tiredly

      at the full length of the day

And voices ring of distance, their words
lost to afternoon sunlight

The trees catch hold of what little
breeze there is and whisper to it:

      "I know you..."

Too little of this can be
captured as a reminder,

      so I cling to the spaces

Between sloping branches
for what they reveal of the

Late-day light lying beyond,
stretching out, as it does, from other

      edges of other places,

Chasing me with the starkness
of the thought: "I know you"

"I know you," it says,

"I know you".
