Waves Goodbye Waves

from by Barclay Burns



I’m gone now, five miles off the lighthouse
Closing my hands on themselves
I withdraw my complaints
Open and shut my eyes
The planet fades off in a curve
All wheels turn.

I sense a reluctance to speak
What are you reading into these days?
If I paved the streets
I’d get to rename them
In a small house by the sea
Where the hands of clocks can’t reach
The lunar beach at night
Ancient engine cough to life

Waves goodbye waves
