great love remembered

he has found the time,
distance from crossings,
fuzzy countries trailing, smiling,
bringing him back
just across town
to see her then as she shimmered
on the dock in the sun
her golden hair still golden
as she covered softly perfect breasts,
allowing him an innocent joy,
exuberance with a camera
to take four pictures.
myopically chivalrous,
he saved just one.
