Moved away
 1
but continued
 2
our conversations
 3
in my head  
 4
 
 
occasional letters
 5
and a batch
 6
of impenetrable sonnets
 7
punctuating
 8
half a century
 9
since school
 10
 
 
saved him up
 11
for my retirement
 12
drive up there
 13
carry on
 14
where we left off
 15
 
 
his voice stumbling
 16
on the phone
 17
who are you
 18
 
 
of course
 19
I remember you
 20
 
 
shouting at another
 21
stroke patient
 22
to get out of his way
 23
 
 
leave the school photograph
 24
in the loft
 25
with the grief
 26
and the sonnets
 27
