  • In the half-light dusking
    at Sumortūn’s edge
    August not yet done
    her silhouette mood
    for endings stayed,
    two figures can hold at bay
    the swelling tide
    the close of day
    & stand
    not empty nor
    but watching out
    & holding each
    all of the whole
    wide world
