The Voyage of Saying (a poem)



you’re not here, you say

yes i am! i’m talking to you!

no you’re not; you never call


but i write you.

it’s not the same.



maybe this is the place.

What do you mean?

our love is a long saying;

this might be where we

say it best


but you’re never here.

the word takes me voyaging.


at night:

do you think it could ever work

for us?

all i have is these pearls.
