POEM: The Ocean

The Ocean

We’re both listening to
Richard Hawley.

Not together, but
together anyway.

When “The Ocean”
comes on I imagine…

it doesn’t matter.
But I’m certainly

picturing it as the violins
dance in the background.

There’s no key
for this painting.

We just have to guess
at the colors,

try to keep them from
spilling off the canvas.

“You’ll lead me down
to the ocean.”

Guitar solo.
Here comes a wave.
