January, Los Angeles
Love / Time

Rain on the Sea



The gulls hush themselves and lower their heads


stand one-leggéd on the shore while the sky fills


round the waves’ rounded edges round more fade


into the fullness of the soft and steady sound of water


is all the same as the light unchanging with sameness


egoless rain disappearing in the sea as the sea disappears


in the rain the face you have forgotten over and over until even the forgetting is forgot.
