Existence – you’ve taken it all
As you’ve proclaimed. I suspected
Something of that kind out here
On the fringe of it, half in
Half out of nothing more than
A few thoughts about being –
Nothing to insist upon – not even

The knowing – the merest
Reflection only, something of
Someone else walking once with
Me near the ocean on a starry
Night holding hands. I can no
Longer see her, but she looked
In the sea with me and shimmered.

The moon was there with us,
I’m almost sure. Perhaps I dreamed
Or merely imagined a vague longing –
Taking her in my arms, inhaling her
Breath as I kissed her – just for
That moment, then moving along, but
Don’t be alarmed – We left no trace.
