Blood is Thicker
(Sun Series #4)

Almost

After an interview almost good enough
to land the job (and a decent lunch
in Greektown), I hopped the 'L'
out to the line’s end, where he waited for me
patiently tall in the sun.

We hugged and got in his Chevy.
Loosening my tie, I smiled
on that short drive back to Babi and home.

What did I almost tell him then
that, surely, I would have said
had I seen the sky blue forget-me-nots
that I placed in his unmoving hands
that same summer?
