they come marching from the past
armed with old photos, old memories
new names mature faces
spitting images cradled in their arms
strangers known by association
receding hairlines
stockier figures
deep crows’ feet
 “how are you? long time no see”
the e-mails cry
begging for news, an acknowledgement
you hesitate but cave into nostalgia
you hit reply
and Ethernet Hermes does his trick
with your note bubbling with
news of Blackberry-toting students
educators strangers to books
sunny days thankfully not humid
you wait for word from the other side
days drag into weeks
weeks pull months up front
nostalgia deserves a whack on the head
you hit delete
