hallow (v).

I passed the park we went to
when I didn't know the city and
you didn't know the fate
of that job you came here for.

we sat there as kids
feeling old and independent
leaving our homes and
telling our mothers
we knew what we were doing. 

we sat there as loved ones
telling each other our faults
telling each other our secrets
telling each other the things we thought
that kept us from sleep. 

we sat there as strangers
testing each other
to see if we would look away
and instead kept nodding
"I know you, I know."
