I awoke with the taste of it under my skin: that little corner I’d belonged to once; the same coy corner who’d pretended to be mine.  
We slept together enough nights for her dirt to mix with the sweat of my hair, enough for the perfume to explode in open windows, enough to be wrapped in the billowing of curtains, crisp and white on the edge of summer rain. 
We were barefoot against the seasons, curled in a chair overlooking the side street, the geometry of church spires reflecting city heat.  I want it back: the way each plank and road and flower grew up in layers against the next.  I want back the tiny cracks where they couldn’t quite fit flush.  
Buildings grow too far apart here.  Walls are so separated that they cannot speak.  There is no conversation, only an illusion of independence.  I miss the pressure of those voices at night, rocking me to sleep in the spaces of their beats.
