"Open-anchored, we learned to trust our stillness
about the sea’s revolving:"
"his tongue is thick with that dying smell,
the first taste of that old dark thing."
"He was just lighter one day, less there:
damp, with the moldy-wet smell of leaves;
like old furniture sun-fading,
his coat floats dust."
"A teddy bear is too full of meaning
to pour more meaning into"
