I saw a young man. He was smiling, while looking down onto the ground, like happiness was too grand for him to take in. He had torn some flowers up from a bed at the side of the road, black lice crawled along the stems, into his hand. For a moment I believed it was me walking over there. For a moment I believed I was the one who would soon sleep underneath an open window.

For a moment I wanted to hold you tight, feel your breath on my neck.

For then to let you go, to let you do your stuff, to know that I exist somewhere out there where you are, on the tram or where you are drinking your coffee in the morning. That moment when you receive the porcelain cup from the chubby man behind the counter and smile, then I remain in your smile. I remain in your hand resting in your lap, with your fingers twirled around the handle of a plastic bag. I endure in your gaze, swiftly scanning the landscape flying past, through a pane of plexiglass, where someone has scratched in letters that no one else can decipher. I remain in those scratches. I remain in that gaze. I remain in that hand. I remain in that smile.
