A Poem For Now


You walk to the beach

I’ll walk to the bay

 

If only you knew

How to swim

 

We might cross paths

Again some day

 

No matter how long

It’s been

 

The television keeps

Going except

 

On different waves

Each year

 

We become obsolete

And never intercept

 

Although with hope

That our fear of death

 

May join us

Again in the end

 

No matter

What it will now
