    Victor says, I love this time of day.
    This is when I say, Never want to die,
    want to be here forever.

    O maybe it will be possible, in the shaggy heads of trees
    that barely felt us walking beneath them.
    Maybe the corners we turned so often
    the broken pavements
    cracks & signatures
    Daniel Lozano 1962
    continue to hold us all –
    days we walked through thoughtlessly
    forgetting to turn our heads
    to the vine finally making it over the fence
    dangling blossom
    orange cup of joy
    ephemeral as we were
    here
    imagining our deep root
