***

You might have taken

the wrong way home –

A seagull I got into

in the realm of salt.

Keeping my temper

Beautifully –

“Possessing is also to belong”.

You are the sum of lines

I have just written,

An average of 100 words in pencil,

You are a 5-mile ride towards the coast,

You are a fortress over the Atlantic,

You are the border I should cross

Illegally tomorrow,

You are the invitation

I never have received,

You are my long-postponed

Trip

around the Earth,

You are I

sitting in the sunshine,

You are – in capital letters –

THE SUMMER IN FEBRUARY,

You are me gazing till I could see nothing

And my eyes ached

From imagining you

Might have taken

the wrong way home.
