messages whispered into my ear
are never understood
unless it can win a name for me
or save a shallow thought
ankles tight, the drifter stumbles
toward a glowing beacon
attracted by a salty lie
while swallowing the silt
photographs yellowed over years
a window blows in, shaking
shutters, paint chipping to the floor
like varnish, they cover my face.
