Slated for the Shadows

If I lay my hand

Flat against the surface,

Palm down
fingers dipping in the salty wetness,

I can almost feel her moving.

And if I hold my face to the wind

I can almost feel the 
wisp, the whiff, 
her breath

Against my cheek,
tiny droplets fine and silky.

I can hear her breathe,

See her disrupt the

Silver surface and

I can watch the mist that is

Her breath 

Drift and float.

If I put my head under the

Broken surface, eyes open 

I can almost see her


There in the farthest

Bits of fractured light.

Gray and slated for the shadows.
