Casting out my sonic deep spell to you,
dreaming over water on the opposite side
of my ocean, you were the flip side of my coin,
and even if sometimes, love does not last,
one hopes to become less cynical. Romeo,
in another incarnation, scaling the wall of my
chaste seclusion, or rattling the shutters
of some house I used to live in, its north
windows scummed over with salt and spit,
the wind howling its dissonant script, eyeball
to eyeball with the sea, Lovers we were
in past lives the seers say, and we are ending
now. No more preceding me like a young prince,
will you place your cloak to soften the steps
to the pedestal from which my head flew grinning,
spitting final syllables, or, leaping to your feet
will shout to save this Salem sorceress.
Guinevere to your Arthur, did I merit your
trust, if indeed I am your idea, or any-
one's idea of who I was yesteryear,
and will be tomorrow?
