They felt a whisper symphony manifest
The second time they passed.
The ocean hiker and the wandering musician
Traveled the trail of recognition;
A lifted eyebrow
A raised corner of the mouth
Greetings issued with a nod and a hey
Connection was made.
I want to fuck him,
She thought with certainty this time
His thoughts turned inward with deference
His guitar shifting on his back.
The moment moved them apart
But a memory is worth a thousand steps.
