She Picked Up the Large, Dark

She picked up the large, dark
stone, and watched the water
heal its absence.

She put the stone

back

in the water.

Her feet were getting
cold, so she walked
onto the sandbar,

and set her

shoes

down.

She spelled his initials
with her big toe,
and then

erased

them.
