Already Changing

You are already changing, already becoming something else. I look for you in magazines, in cups of tea, in a stranger’s face and I find you sometimes. I call you by the private name I have given to you. My mother, my brother, my lover becomes yesterday, today, and tomorrow. And, I am aware that you will disappear in a direction unknown to me.
