The Harbor Buoy


 

You are telling me
what is missing ...

It is nothing new,
just the beginning
of a conversation
wwwwwwwwwwomen have wanted
to have with men
ssssssssssssince God knows when ...

-- I don't defend myself, just listen,
holding you, till you
        begin to cry ...

Sometimes it is better
to just hold steady
& make rhythmic
soundings
dddddddddeep in the chest

For I want to be
the harbor buoy
meeting you
 
wwwwwwwwhen you sail off
 
& come back in
