You Are In The Company Of Others

You are in the company of others now,

beyond me,

and your confident voice

casts nets entwining them

in the bonds of return.

From the headland

you left far behind

I stand, an empty coat

lifted to the sea,

and far off I breath

the joyous dancing spray

of your being.

But the mists have

erased the clouds

and the white gulls

have fled with the sea.

Over there they have you,

and your bright laugh,

like an infinite wave

that I turned from

in search of my beached sadness,

now plunges other men

backwards into

the surf of your wild arrivals,

where they bathe

strong and virile

under the unappeasable breakers

of your eyes.
