low tide  (unpublished)

it is enough
that he had been there
and had winnowed
the same sand,

that then and
since then
both have always tread
beneath a related twilight,
inhaling the same sky.

and constant motion
is her remedy for loss

and always,
a fine linking thread
reaching through mild landscape
over firm sea
that preserves them
within itself

a pressed gelatin film
between a lens
and another lens
