Rowboat Wreck

Rowboat Wreck

I’ve waited forever
for you to come down
from the oriole in your tower
way up in the clouds

Where I hope you are embroidering
your sheer silk wedding dress
sewing millions of silver sequins on
with the finest golden threads

And I wonder if you gaze
your apple-green eyes
across this supermarine lake and this
swans-down-cloud-sky

Searching the fine
dividing, horizon line
for a galleons full sail
not this rowboat wreck of mine
