It is almost noon

but today’s Times remains

as we approach your old stoop


They have prettied up the place

you say


Even planted flowers


We didn’t have flowers


(They are orange–

did you notice?)


The air conditioner is new, too

Mine was a piece of crap


Third window up

you point


The floor was sloped

and I had mice

but I loved this neighborhood



Sharing guacamole and chips

at your favorite Mexican restaurant on the corner

you snap a picture of my hands


Peering over the camera

you break into a smile


The best part of this day?

You say


is having you


with me.
