AMPERSAND

So important is the tide,

the length of day

whose reach contains both sides

of the running sea,

where the future mixes lazily

with the torchlit limbs of memory,

 

That waves repeat

the flooding range

of lives given to the heat, 

a theoretical exchange

between the extremities

of quantum energy,

 

But only here

in the brown rum glare,

in the fun house mirror

of time-lapse shirts and dated hair,

does the end

of endless suns appear.
