Sometimes it only seems
the Everly Brothers still
murmur in my ear

…only trouble is…
gee whiz…

it was so long ago
I can no longer remember
so sometimes I count
church bells instead
or the tiny, spreading
wakes of a skipped
flat rock, or autumn leaves
being carried by a slow current

Sometimes I hum
back, loosen my tie
and allow myself
to reminisce
about her tiny
waist, how my two
hands would cup
the small bones of her hips,
how they felt just like
valuable silver coins
turned over & over
in my hands

…only trouble is…
gee whiz…
