So Far

Tom Snarsky

I spent today running
away from a Brian
Calvin painting

its idea anyway
the way my memory of it
of her neck as a sail

haunted away an empty
afternoon. Egg yolk
moon, reflected,

shadow in her hair,
no face, maybe an ear
which my phone wanted

earlier, for “way”,
& then, just now, “say”
