LIVES A MILE
from the sea.
she is sallow as a beach.
she smells like rain,
or a wet earth,
with pale hair clipped
behind her head
with pins.

she feels as though her hair
would be black. but it is
brown, sometimes
and sometimes
it is colorless
blonde.

KATRINA
GIVES MY STOMACH
a fight.

she doesn't speak.
she is silence.
i speak at her, mostly
and her eyes
look as though
they've been plucked
from a lynx
to replace
her own.

they are blue around the edges
the deep blue you find
at the edge of the sea,
if you've been out that far.
at the center they are green
light like a riptide.
they tug you in.

unmoving, and calculating
with audacity.


KATRINA
i said to some
one once,

gave me head.

she didn't.

her hands are too far dug
into the coast of spain
for her to reach me,
far too eager

for my composure.

she'd suck me dry
like her mothers did
the caspian sea,

like the fields of sahara
once lush with green.

she is a barefoot girl.
she moans like the shorefront
in the dead of night.

i've made love to her a thousand times,
but, no

in truth, katrina
has never known me.
no not the hurricane 
but cloose
