I’m Getting Better at This

A beautiful sunny afternoon 70 degrees
Dear Bella Levenshtein

For months
I’ve wanted to visit with you

But packed schedules
The oddities of time and noncoincidences of space

Emails unresponded to
It didn’t ever happen

Till today, at last!
We planned to take a walk in the park

An hour to expand, radiate, dissolve
Together

Then while waiting I received your text
“Something’s come up … reschedule?”

I admit I was very disappointed
For about six seconds
