How do I conjure you? From memory? From the men I loved? Or is your face unknown to me? Have I passed you somewhere, have I looked into your eyes and wanted to keep looking but the crowds carried us on our separate ways? Are you within reach and I am blind? Or have you come and gone and I missed you, or you missed me, and I will have to wander beyond time to seek you again?… How do I call you to me? What name do I use? What sound?
