"rediscovering your two left feet"
A buoy, freshly minted, bouncing among
softly rolling waves, emphatically waving
goodbye as the sun falls back
into the earth.
The first dance with your mother,
rediscovering your two left feet,
and lust for life. Her calm hand steadies
sea legs as you both sail
into the hyacinth sunset.
There’s sand in the sieve;
the hourglass flips for the last time.
