18. Tuning Fork

You avert something,
an imagined death maybe
some other life.

You watch the rain
change to snow
and the face of
the Chinese
surprised to see you.

You're a stranger
buying milk.

Before closing the door
you see him
sitting on the mattress
reading Doctor Seuss
his blonde head
shaking slowly

It stays with you.
