3 Years Later…

There is a place called "far away"
 she lives; and that is far enough
 that when a message comes, it's like
 a bottle from the universe,
 delivered on the sea of time and space
 and spanning ages lost.

Upon the coast of "far away" she stands
 but thinks of us, some way,
 and send some photos and some words
 describing how she works and lives
 as though, not quite an alien,
 she's more like someone born afar
 but raised on earth, she knows
 the language.

But there is nothing so exotic,
 quite so hard to understand
 as somebody who comes from you
 who now dwells off in "far away"
 and is in every way

 a perfect


 stranger
