Yoko and John outside the Dakota building in NYC, Fall 1980.

past stands
with small smiles
to oblige a camera.

present lines up
in the same spot
with different cameras,
wider smiles.

stand where they stood.
it seems the thing to do.

but john was shot a month later
by a lunatic.

center left.


unaware smiles.


i stand in a blizzard.
someone points out her window.
"the light's on. she's home."

snow swirls and gusts.
what must she think of us,
standing in their spot
near the fields
created to hold
strawberry memories?
