...a third bucketful of poems... 23 February 2007

 

books line the shelves
like paper dunes, and i
walked through the desert
until i found you,
shining amid dryness
like a lost inland sea.

 

you looked up and saved me
with one sparkling glance
and in that moment, i knew
how burke and wills
must have felt
before tasting salt.
