    we drove south of the city,
    and straight into a sunset
    that had no sense of time

    we were going nowhere together,
    following our noses, as the saying
    goes, breathing in the evening

    reading in a bakery,I discovered
    “the fragrance of our lives in the world” . . .
    from someone else’s words rose

    a reminder that the incense of
    existence rises from small stories
    and everyday memories

    and slips under the doors of our
    hearts like the smell of fresh bread,
    a bouquet of belonging.
