There is the new
clean air
the smell of dark earth
cold, against my skin
rocks by the rusted rail ties
waiting
I feel, as the waves
come between faint
fishing line, plastic crates
a dock belonging
to no one-
the words we are not saying
against my ribs
a pattern in sand, broken
footprints, one white
winter leaf
before my heart.
