It is simple..the topic is expressing love to one another. Through all
this, woman cannot remove her eyes from him. As he rises to go..she ever
so softly with erotic thoughts in mind...pulls him back to her. It is a
beautiful real life love poem.

ist she waving bye-bye,
or do her fingers reach to pull him back?

ist the girl Ezra's audience?
maybe he is saying that soon he'll be a recluse, off in Italy, and there's
nothing anyone can do.
Maybe he sees the fingers as those of the world; unimportant, albeit
pretty, as a friendly wave goodbye after a breif and meaningless encounter
in which nothing was absorbed.
