not quite out of sight

since then we start again
a dash
a hiss
a bit of us gets a grip
someone else’s eyes to look into
we stay up for sunrise
from the landfill
from the shore
amongst the mountain
the hillsides full of tiny fires
blowing kisses
forget me not and remember me when
just in the matter that we don’t catch up
before it sets-
