I wonder if you know

That it’s good to hear you laugh

Even from a distance

Even from through the woods I can feel your smile

Your heartbeat

When you let go of the sadness that grips tight at your lungs

I wonder if you know

That it brings out my sharpened teeth

If I suddenly lose you and somehow

Defeat the apathy long enough to move on,

I will laugh in your successor’s face

The first time he tries to put me in my place;

I will look him straight in the eyes
