(I narrate for you)
Even when time’s changes and the earth’s rotations
make it impossible to know where or when you are.
even when you are not there or here,
when you could not know you were there….

I know you are
(any reading thereof)
I hope your feet are warm.

I dream they are trying to indicate you to me.
