you leaning in a doorway somewhere, near some blue hydrangeas

“…I wondered if they had become friends
after all those years
or if they were still strangers to one another

like you and I
who manage to be known and unknown
to each other at the same time–

me at this table with a bowl of pears,
you leaning in a doorway somewhere
near some blue hydrangeas, reading this.”
-Billy Collins
