He and I
were looking
at the same thing,
the same words
the same pictures
on the screen
when he and I
had been so lost
to each other
for lifetimes
as lost as fallen leaves
as lost as snowflakes
as lost as time capsules
buried in sand
as unimportant
as un-urgent
as forgotten

For one moment
he and I
were looking at
the same phrases and sentences
the same flashing images
on the screen

and it begs the question
of whether we were
seeing the same thing
