I liked the evening because it was in between dark and light, a purple colour that makes everything clear and easy. You say let’s sit over there because that is where there is a view of big black buildings against a sunset. I look at the sky through the silhouetted leaves and say it looks like a desktop background! You tell me I spend too much time on my laptop and give me a poem to read for later. When I read the words in my head I can’t feel them properly so I read them out loud but then their meaning leaves me as soon as I am finished. Maybe that is all that love is; revision and recital until the person sinks into you and you remember little bits of them always.
