one iceberg at a time
June 8, 2006

You know me,
a laconic tree,
draped in ornate malaise.

You know the
mussel shell
and periwinkle crunch
beneath sandals.

You notice
the moon,
as if there is nothing else.

Arduous days,
my thoughts turn
to your hair,
the tingle of your fingers
down my back.

You carry
broken pottery in a pouch,
keep it close to your hip.

You use them
for your art,
a new mosaic
made from pieces
of my artifact past.

You make a
white wine toast
to our own fin de siecle.

These times are met
between wistful stares to the sea,
and tear
drops on the forest floor,
yet I have your staid bosom,
where my dribble cup is filled
with your luminescence.

You see my psychic
flotsam and jetsam
drifting lethargically into the sunset,
one iceberg at a time.

You see what no one
else can.

You hear the thoughts
of trees,
like me.
