You picked up the phone and my recognition was instant; just as the onslaught of memories was instant.

but I nearly called you by the wrong name--thinking you were a different person, just as I have become another person in the years since I have seen you. Others have filled the collective holes in my life and here I am struggling with your name and with the silences--they get heavier every time.
