[a dissolution]

gone are the days when we were gentle
pilgrims floating towards each other

your touch has long evaporated
[i hear you live in a drought now]


some say the water here’s the same
as anywhere, it carves, erases

      i can’t erase that memory
   [believe me the water knows]

      i can’t erase that memory
