Elsewhere Apparently

Elsewhere Apparently

More frequently I find myself safe and sound 
with here and now … on purpose
Look about and breathe

Elsewhere apparently. Could have fooled me 

Resting and recuperating from excessive internal 
and external explanations, demanding descriptions, 
and definitions, of everything that is not - apparently
- here and now

Content, happy, and satisfied enough with this 
self life story; multi-dimensional, eternal, ephemeral. 
Here again, here again, now, now, now.

Elsewhere apparently. Could have fooled me

And you? How I would love to sit with you and see 
your smiling eyes, go for the giggle and guffaw, 
you know how we do.

To see your favorite color. Hear your long full name. 
Smell, touch, taste, the stories of your many 
collections; people, places, things …. that

Elsewhere apparently. Could’ve fooled me

Editing the ending: How I would love to sit with you, 
simplifies to: I love you, and as you and I fall away,
there is little left but love - here again, now.
