one eye to the sea

the other one I keep for me

because, pearl.

my love, i try

the steady race of time, it flies

someday these liquid silken alabaster folds, cream and peaches, strawberries


may too betray cruel master, seconds minutes hours, in their hands our lives behold

one moment now might bring me to the where and how

might weightless float this heavy heart

to places,

and the estuaries

navigations in the leaves

the veins, fresh vanities the evergreens

to places

places I may see

only from the bough of my imagination’s tree

the vessel, carved but living travels there for me

as I the vessel

pause for you

to borrow, never capture

one eye to the sea, the other one I keep for me.”
