Each grain of sand contains within it
the entire knowledge of the universe,
each breath of wind
all of time.
You have flown
while I watched the scimitar sliver
of a pale mooncrescent
rise over the prussian blue heat.
I would have liked
to know you more
to continue and deepen our friendship
the spaces appeared
illness claimed you
pain and suffering chose to work on you but
at this Abu Dhabi hotel writingdesk
and the Chevrolet garage across the road
is already open.
