THE PIER AT DUSK 1979

published in: STOP LYING | booklet edited by The Middle of Silence Gallery | New York 1982

At the waterfront,
the sun melts the wind
into memories. They
lay in a puddle,
rippling.
I try to find one
image, but the
sky and tide
engulf.
Incoherently they
mummur, “I know
not who I am,” or
“I do not care," and
oddly enough,
"Do not despair!”

At the waterfront,
the sun melts the wind
into memories. They
lay in a puddle,
rippling.

At the waterfront, gray skies collapse
into puddles, memories scald, dreams
scream and gossip and ask why?
I seem to know something.

What is it?- a second on flame?

No- it’s only that the sun
will be called by its first name,
death introduced to disdain
and tomorrows involve less pain!
