Bodies of Water

The earth rests upon water.
Thales (585 B.C.)

The only one I want to talk to
is the only one I cannot talk to.
We do not speak anymore.

Strange the language that evolves.
But without words, the rivers
recede, the snow stays frozen.

Yes, a kiss, a touch, a look, a hug,
a walk are all important, but
to talk to you, to speak to you,

to have the words run over
and soak us, both of us holding
out our hands, trying to catch

the splashes and gulps, hearing
the water gain momentum, rushing
out at us, shouting, laughing, diving

in our own dreams, our own
imaginations, the water spurting
upwards in glints, to see

the light on our words, sparkling,
slipping over rocks, smoothing
the heaped sand: deep, deep between us—

love, water, cascading into sentences,
tugging and stretching the fiber
of our lines, the words dashing

in and out of the crevices
in our walls, touching both shores:
reviving, filling, drenching us alive.
I miss those cloudbursts, I miss
the breaking of all dams, the sudden
drop of surprises and energy,

the high wheels turning our minds
and rolling our riverboat colors—the
whole blues and lake greens and golds

of your New England syllables.
Listen to me, speak to me:
it can continue, it can continue—

the world is almost all water,
don’t turn the world away;
speak to me, talk to me.

Let’s have tall glasses of water.
We’ll drink to the oceans, down
to the ocean, sailors safe home,

we’ll toss our glasses
to the waves, touch again what
holds us up and made us.
