of crashing waves
and bitten moons
and liquid bodies
trying to be free.

And I will sing
your final hallelujah
all the way down
to a volatile green
somewhere far off from this shore.

See, it was never about
the ways that you could change
beneath a great gray wandering

but about realizing the
that has been in you
all along.

jumping out of
moving boats
and climbing up
a pitch dark scandal
in my mind
or in my hand
for a summer.
