It already feels like old, tight-fitting skin

Fall at Sierra College

Mornings in the Sewell Hall

Watching you pass by

Staring, and then later smiling at me when we knew each other’s name

Astro lessons underlined and notes

Scarves and white jackets and black sunglasses

Afternoons on rooftops and laying on grass

Under trees and splayed over falling leaves



Reds and oranges

And 45 minutes time periods sitting on benches

Waiting for lab

Searching for your car in the parking lot on my way in every morning

Knowing I’d see you and talk to you in only a matter of hours


Nights at Rene’s

Star Wars movies and

Laying in bed


Immortal hours and what felt like days

And your skin on mine

And your lips on mine


And rings and brown hair and black sunglasses and bandanas and vegan burritos

Dollar paper cranes

And cigs and benches and leaves and trees and talking and smiling and laughing

Fall at Sierra College


And you and I in the planetarium,

Astro class on October 26th,

Joking about the sleeping students

And you and I in the planetarium,

Watching Interstellar

No longer watching anyone else

But holding each other’s hand instead

Looking away when the wave comes in

And washes eveything away but the two of us in the dim light of the room

When you were still here
