An experiment for me in a style I don’t usually work in. Let me know what you think.
It’s only today because there’s not enough time left for tomorrow
and now it may run like the stream we swam in, that was a river
we crossed on our way here, where everyone was leaving
as we arrived because it was cooler now than before
which was good for us to swim and sit and feel the sliding weeds
reaching out under the shallow current of water
that in its day could take everything and not care.
Because it’s not in its nature, being only one part in the scheme
that follows the moon to the sea and the wide spaces we fear.
