Miss Me

Painting by Robert Payet

Miss Me

named for the love of common man
in stasis, she looks homeward forever

binnacle long since lost to the sun

her barnacles and bones
whispered clean by the moon
she waits storm tossed across granite seasons.

in gold silence the shore reaches


slowly for her;

stars listen where water and ways
burn never apart

and horizons are merely
imperceptible lines of the same heart

together only in storm and wanting,
her course is set where
worlds vanish in soft collision:

the ocean eventually takes everything
a fisherman holds dear:

I wonder if she wishes for the solitude
just a jade eternity away

as Terns cry finally her long way home
