When I drag our Skype conversation
to my widescreen, high-definition monitor
and maximize it, it looks like sky-blue
Levolor blinds through which a darker blue
sky appears, and I think, why am I sitting inside
on such a day as this, with evening coming on,
and across its peaceful blueness your words
and my words interleaved, disappearing?
