for charlotte lin
iris fan

same misty afternoon
you are 019 flashing
on the phone screen
I picture you
on the early morning coach
from Portsmouth to Heathrow
maybe the foggy circle
on my window pane is your sigh

I remember you at seventeen
tough and skinny
your eyelashes are
like the wings of
black butterflies
they distract me
whenever we talk

the day is drizzling on and off
I can see you in your small flat
cooking for dinner
tomato and egg
mushroom and cauliflower

do you remember
the fireworks once held in our hands?

two high school girls
amazed by the sparks
