Saro – LOOKING

In the end
Turn your back to them
Begin to walk away
Strut, actually. Strut away.
Then remember,
The emblematic phrase of triumphant bitterness
It’d feel wrong not to say it
Pivot
And move two steps back toward them
Maintain eye contact (this is key)
Raise your pointer finger and take an assertive stance
Hold your ground
Inhale
“I hope you find what you’re looking for!”
And before they can answer
Strut away again
End of an era
Or
Arms crossed, adjust yourself slightly, looking outward momentarily,
Turn your head back toward them and find their face blurred by tears accumulating in your eyes, blink once to clarify and as the droplet slides down,
Exhale
“I hope you find what you’re looking for.”
The phrase can take many shapes
In any case
A crazy thing occurs where love becomes history
A break previously unfathomable snaps in an interminable instant
Resolution and melancholia merge in an impossible way
Disbelief pervades
But it happens
And the world remains the same
In the end
