flutter of black

kept you
a flutter of black
a memory of joy
and music
moving feet
and confidence

glamour from another
mine and the past
wish part of that
would've last-ed

you still
thrill me
with one gaze
I take you in
and the mind collapses
in backwards through
a teserect of time
if time could be all
its elements at once

past present future
I would make them one
and return to the girl
who wore the flutter of black
with the music pulsing in
her veins.
