On my face
the fleeting touch of rain
no address
for the favorite cousin
who lives on a sailboat

  out on the ocean
we sailed with fair winds
danced with dolphins –
why are we stranded now
on sandbanks of discontent

    rinsing plates
from last night's dinner
those shared hopes
washed off, wiped up
and put away

collected shells
forgotten in a box
until the last move
when memories of young love
again rise like the tide

  a mover's sticker
from three moves ago –
how many times
must i cross this country
to find a home?

    is his face still the same,
our time the time of old?
my heart
remains unchanged
watching blossoms fall
