Every crisis in my life
has left expected tinges
I wish were erasable,
but also unforeseen traces
of the embraceable.

After school, two five-year-old boys
Hug and cry in the parking lot
As one is moving far away
And how would it be possible
To span that large of a distance
When you are two five-year-old boys
Whose parents are not acquainted
And all there is left to do is
Hold each other and cry
