Friends Talk in the Afternoon

He said to wait
and so, they sat and talked
of what was past.

“I thought the nets would break.”
“Did you see the look on the boy’s face
when the loaves went around?”

And one still mused
at smell of perfume
spilling on the floor.

Suddenly, there came a breath
of summer wind with fire
that filled them all with infinite desire.
