Healy and Juravich: Tangled in our dreams

Correspondence

Tom Juravich

A new message, unexpected
Could it have really been that long?
Songs shared on a distant stage
Our lives off some early page
I remember and reply
I remember and reply

An easy exchange continues
We pick up on our lives
We write of music, share new songs
The day-to-day, how we’re getting along
Two people re-emerge between the lines
Two people re-emerge between the lines

A thread picked-up, another followed
Back through complicated lives
Histories that know too much pain
We write about things unspoken, unnamed
Revelations on the screen
Revelations on the screen

Did we ever think we’d become weavers?
Binding together all these threads
The hurt, small victories, the quiet rage
More hope than could squeeze on a page
We become fast friends
We become fast friends

So, we continue our correspondence
Though the word sounds funny to my ears
Should be wooden desks and fountain pens
Long letters between ancient friends
I hit send, wait for a reply
I hit send, and I wait for a reply

A new message, unexpected
