fifty-four reasons

fifty-four reasons
later, we will somehow forget
that we were aware –

an ocean of new old memories
attacking old memories

the sea is often

the sea is often
charged with the loneliness of
legions – let us look

away now and then, should the
cold become unbearable

for a moment, the

for a moment, the
sun felt high
, as if it could
last an afternoon

longer, no worries, no rush,
waves lapping this side of sky

the earth’s mantle still holds

the earth’s mantle still holds
tricks
up his layered sleeves
like an Everlasting
Gobstopper,
a trembling poet,
a heart
in training –
all learning
and relearning
to lock an ocean away

some motions are

every now and then,

every now and then,
we are led to the sea to
test our steadfastness –
like a young
grandmother’s
embrace, the waves
are both
intimate and
aloof, warm
and so cold

how naively we

love glows when

love glows when
stirred, as though
injected with
the latest light-
emitting
plankton.
there is no need
to panic – dive in

how do i say this –

how do i say this –
these opening chords have
shipwrecked my first
city refuge, the entire
studio rests teeter-
tottering between
april and may,
suspended
in the glow
of a single bulb
and you, playing
Durango Kid
on my speakers,
hardwood floors
chasing those
arpeggios, letting
the tea boil over –
everywhere i am,
these waves push
me back

if time ran parallel

if time ran parallel
and eventually
into the same great
ocean, we needn’t
be afraid of
separation, my
dear. you are forever
attached to me
as i to you, and
even in this one
moment, we are
together and
apart, navigating
by the same sun,
moon, and stars,
cupped by the same
wind and waters
