coda the game

now
let us play
the game
of love and loss

once more

another coda

I
will be
the dusty plain
you will be
my sorrow

taking what can’t be
sustained

a cloud encircled
by confusion

or you the tree
and I the leaf

how much heart goes
with the departure

I am
the track
laid down

you
my train
are rolling

destination
down the line
in some port
where

you
this time will be the ocean

a mighty sea

I a boat
floating climbing
to mount the swell
where
a glimpse
of some horizon

yes
in the end
you carry me
bobbing

all our dangerous depths
safe held

below

    • Tracy, thank you so much. I do apologise for taking so long to respond. I’ve been busy.

      This has to rank as one of the better pieces, because I had no trouble falling into its rhythms even after months of distance. I’m so glad you enjoyed it.

      Thank you.
