The footfall

Chungmi Kim


The full moon
glamorized with white
teeth shone
on the pavement.

The dots
zoomed like snowflakes
that winter.

To see you in your lover's arms
is like seeing
a child in his nurse's care.
I'm glad you can now unwind
your lonely breath.
It's a gift.
A memory.

A cat
sitting in the moonlit alley
listened
to my footfall.

Listening to yours
that night I disappeared
into the dark.
If you still remember...

How I am tonight
is how you see me.

You will not see
me again.
