as we pass
the years strengthen
the boys we were friends
we are and now i just want
to relax on a beach or a porch laughing
at ourselves as the tide continues taking us

desire is always coming
commingling with the sea
in us all
the frothing waves
that sweep
us further into the future
than our past limits our desire
is always coming

#219. spring brings

spring brings

me to the river

just like the tide brings

the drifting

castoffs

or

winter breakages

valued once

as something

useful

now it rots

unless a poem saves it

or

the drifter

reclaims it

for her dinner
