       For Keithwi. [I think I missed an opportunity.] Sorry the tenses are all messed up. I'm too tired to care.

    dotsThe Lakedots

    I left the tabernacle in quite a hurry.
    I put on my coat and gloves and
    cloaked in my alone-ness
    stood on the cement steps to the beach.
    The sands are washed over by
    recollections of frigid gazes, terse words.
    I hate it here. I'm afraid of lakes.
    So I venture onto the dock, and back to the steps,
    and tremble in the wind.

    Standing there, I could see some shadow
    crossing the wet grass, coming towards me.
    It's all clear to me now that
    you followed me down there.
    The intentions you've been hinting at for so long
    could be heard in your questions,
    the sadness in your voice when I didn't want to talk.
    You've opened up your soul to me
    to the world
    and I'm standing here with my hood around my face
    blowing hair in my eyes and
    my mouth closed.

    I think you're stronger than me.
    I don't know, maybe we should fight.
    I'll get angry and self-abusive and you can yell at me
    and then it won't be awkward anymore.
    Then I'll tell you all the things I assume
    about your past, about your future,
    about why you came after me.

    But I don't have any words for you.
    I'm much too cold, I can't feel my lips.
    So for now, I'm going to forget that you
    followed me down to the lake and
    I'm going to pace the gray shores of discontent,
    tossing these eroded memories
    back into the black waters
    while you shiver and walk away.
