Do You Know What I See When I Look At You (2) | Art by Kenichi Yokono

Kenichi Yokono

Red stains on your window sill

And all the songs we used to kill driving through Larches Lane

I remember our walks through Southburn Park and your silly attempts to capture the wind in your hands.

I sometimes wonder whether you can see us,

Can hear what we all say to explain away your clumsy fall, a fall that hit us with a bit too much force, considering we all saw that the day was coming,

Running lightening fast towards us in a stream of silent screams,

The jump echoing the joys of yesterday and the insanity that led your way.

We saw it coming, Lara, but did nothing.
