We’ll Meet Again



Not a soul stirs

Except mine


No bustle


Lapping, boats creak

Far off gull-squeak

Not too many yet


Salt in the air


I could jump in

How far would I swim?

Into abyss that’d swallow me whole


No land in sight


Let a whale take me in

Shoot me out its spout

With glee I shriek


Till tomorrow, we’ll meet again


Whale song it tips out of sight

On crab cage steps

I climb onto the pier


Dripping wet


See you for dinner tonight

For now here I’ll sit

Feel the breeze blow my hair


Shhhh, they sleep yet
