These drops

These drops on the old pavement
Are achingly familiar —
Their shape, smell, texture, color
All bear a peculiar symmetry
To my dreams
I squint and examine them
With microscopic attention
A vague notion gets beached
On the shore of my consciousness:
They are what went missing that
Afternoon in August, and how is it
It hadn’t occurred to me to look for them?
