Nostalgia’s the drag on each moment’s explosion. Not only weather’s undone by a change of direction. The bat dangles overhead like an echo. We are as in a brightness approaching the face, like a word not quite recalled. Fog on McCovey Cove and a school of tail lights dispersing. The city seems to rub itself out in the bay—
Who chooses solitude glances up halfway across the field to find anyone in a noisy vehicle and rolling-in heavy weather emergent.
