But you had withdrawn yourself from the days when you used to tell me you’d always need me, and I had walked across the Ambassador Bridge without so much a glance behind me. I realized, unshaken, that you were never more than a idealization, and I smiled because even so, you had gifted me with a muse for the ages.
