Skinny Dipping

Do you remember

The ocean just as

The sun skinny dips

Into it?

The gold bars

On ruby and lava?

With feet sunken

In shells and sand?

It’s been thirty skinny dips

Since I have.

The gold is still there

On the rubies and lava;

So are the shells

And figurines of sand.

But the heart doesn’t lift

This thirty first time,

Perhaps it’s the

Missing shadow

Beside mine.
