Saudade

|the wonderful thing about this distance
I can picture you in small hours
with a great fancy, I think: the way
you may imagine yourself,
Sometimes____

as the hero,
victor, gambler,
fortune-hunter,
madcap wanderer

& gleefully glorify this
diamond-eyed protagonist
I fell in love with

so many years ago|
