189 Miles

by Beverly Tan From "Water in a Wineglass"

I want to kiss you in Central Park In a blanket of fresh fallen snow Ignoring city lights, and passerbys

Alongside the ruins of Ancient Rome Gods and goddesses looking down on us In the temple of Roma and Amor

Under the Aurora Borealis The northern lights, the Finish fox fires The dancers of long gone Vikings

By the bending skyscrapers of Japan Cherry blossoms raining down on us The rising sun warming our faces

In Istanbul, Egypt Under the mosaic dome of Aya Sofya A rainbow of dust and sky above us

In the jungles of Bali Surrounded by the sound of macaws Riding atop a great elephant

Most of all I want to kiss you right now.

Where I am Cullowhee, North Carolina Watching the sun set Over the mountains of Appalachia alone

Where you are Augusta, Georgia Behind the barracks of Fort Gordon 189 miles away
