Almost Perfect

Almost Perfect

spectacular lightning eludes the camera
the figure in dreams just out of reach
crossword solution on the tip of my tongue
pleasant aroma I can’t quite place

medium rare filet mignon, no potato
hot shower, missing soap
quiet whisper, unheard
a promise, never given

the tune my father sang, words I can’t remember
whistle of the last train departing the station
me standing with suitcase on platform
summer rental boarded up
