You find yourself

You find yourself one day and you can kiss someone dispassionately. You can be intimate without feeling close at all. You find yourself feeling nothing, a still puddle in the sun. A glassy lake with no ripples, just a lot of hot bugs zigzagging around. Something you never thought you’d be. But then I have one drink and one cigarette and one hour talking over a banjo and a fiddle in the back of a bar, and I remember what it feels like when the wind pushes waves through the lake, when there’s small fish and big fish and life in the lake. We talked about that one night, one year ago, when we both knew, and that one song that played when he gave me that one kiss that was the last. We signed for the drinks. I stood in the middle of the sidewalk. He held me around the waist. No other hands have felt like his. No other belly had that warmth. And even though he picked up a new cologne, which I knew because he told me, he bragged to me that one day how “daddy’s got a whole new scent,” I didn’t smell it. It belonged to the air beside him. I smelled him.
