Epistle


Find in this letter the child
and a small knot of sister.

Find that place I talked of once,
first the water and then the gulls.

Find refusal
meaning wince when touched

and hold tight to the sand.
Find a boat for escape,

find just in case.
Find I want you always young.

I want the sea to bloom forever.
Find, sincerely.

Find, anyone who’s felt the ache
of a warm summer wave pull away.
