eve looks over her shoulder
Spain – rooftop – the public shower
above the treeline.
is now a full day sun
an oven door cooling in the kitchen
dishes ready to be
washed in the sink.
no one is there when she looks over her shoulder
the ocean is not heard in the background
trees stand still as her only audience.
on the street
passing the same building
Adam searches the tourists
passing the open door
he hears the shower
and realizing the ocean no longer moves
and realizes the trees no longer sway
he has found her
is now certain
they belong together…..
