I did not seek your attention,
I took you for that person, the one
Who had dispersed the mists of space
And reached me in my here and now…

No, you did not take me for another --
It was merely me, an alien other
Who was soon to vanish, becoming
Stranger before encounter…

But I am certain it was not you…
Yet you could have been -- had we met
Face to face, some unknown place
But not here, not now…
