A walk to forget


The waves licked our feet
reminding me of resolute wings
pushing their feathers out through gaps
I had kept hidden

You pointed out the rocks with mossy hair
I saw a stream of clear water trapped in between
A small Gulliver in Brobdingnag

Behind us the sun fell
The darkness was no match
for your angry bewilderment
or my lack of colour within
