Seasons

Sharky blue waters between me

and

you there in the land of the Lucaya,

You once loving me in a funky transition,

Hazel eyes singing hauntingly-

alternating between a mythical longing for Ethiopia,

and a temporal Babylonian lust

pushed up against the timeless, placeless, pursuit of real love

Now we are distant “hellos” sent from petite electronic boxes 

Bouncing across the Atlantic

in summer, fall, winter, and spring.
