Water and Ice - always in my mind


We came here before the storm came, before

The big waves began to form

Toward the sea wall, rolling

And capping, white teeth,

All teeth, no brains.

Figures on small inflatable rafts

Bob up and down

At the very top of the sea wall.

They are close enough to speak with.,

Over against us, like angels.

They ply their rafts like dreamers.

We are tricked by visions.

They break the stars

Apart and make rooms of them

Where we can walk,

Remembering friends, travels

To sweet smelling shores,

The taste of a lover's mouth

Before the big waves come,

Before the sea itself embraces

All weather, washing over us

Day after day, night after night,

Leaving messages in our bones,

Washing those same bones away.
