Choice Poem


It takes another five years

to know which direction

you need to stand to face the sun


The ocean crashes into waves

splintering rust over golden shores

Flailing in concise

and immediate



The burning light

brightens the sand

and sea at midnight


I turned my car around

And drove to your house

But you weren’t there


And I wonder

if I stood here motionless

would the slow turning rhythm

of the earth

bring you back?
