On Watching Couples in a Restaurant

He could sit anywhere alone
and let thoughts slip and slide;
anywhere could sit face to face 
in silence with someone
he's supposed to love;
could let laws of certainty and manner 
decide what to say;
could glance across any table 
without piercing the water; 
could speak without ripples, anywhere;
could float in the sea anywhere, 
watching for storms without really caring.
