still breathing you in

by Jeff Flesch, Monthly Contributor

the last time I saw you, Coltrane was spinning,
and there was this feeling, a rose in your
hair,
cunning, and
fair

while music billowed out, raspy, deep sounds filtering
throughout,
and
as
I

asked for your hand, you turned to stare, hearts
speaking through the ether air,
no sound, only two souls
bound

and
as you moved
closer
I
gasped…still breathing you…
in and out…
