Day 184 – Thoughts Back Then

My hair’s always short when I meet you
but it will grow
and my body will change
photographs tell me things
but not the things I want to remember–
what thoughts were hiding in that smile
sitting in front of the jellyfish tank
what was lurking behind my shades
eating lunch at the pier? Did I like
that short hairstyle then as much as I do now,
I can cut it off but I can’t get back
to my thoughts back then
