Les Amis

Twenty years move like water
rushing along momentum building until somehow diverted
into a swirling eddy we circle
and
return to the crush, our friends faces there for a moment
frozen in a a smile, and gone

I learned to reach out and take hold of what I could reach
twig jutting out over the water promisingly
held in friendship or mutual need

Some people stay a while
resting in the curve of my heart there is knowing
Or

like stars in the night sky, light a way ahead,
then wander off to seek treasure in different waters

We gaze together into the the annihilation that promises us
that where the world ends we find desire
waiting to hold us
