Getting to know you was like watching the golden gate bridge emerge from fog,
like watching a glacier give way and fall into the sea.
I remember when we were skipping to hotels like rocks on a pond.
Do you recall when we saw the moon through the clouds
and it looked like there was a halo around it
and we saw a wayward star, zig-zagging down the sky?
and when the radiator finally gave out
you were biting at the smoke like a confused and hungry dog.
You made sign that said, “we seek an angel without wings”
And we managed to hitch halfway back to paradise
