considered suspect

you put your arm down on top of your car
a wine-colored vehicle if I remember correctly
and you looked at me
when for the moment
my confidence had waned the most
“You know” you said
just audible over a street far away
where traffic was notoriously bad
“I miss you. When you aren’t around.”
and you smiled
as though this was some off hand thing
and I was finally aware
of what I might only until now
have considered suspect
