Regret. Lying on a seabed back to the sand coral curling at my ears I look up the world airless and fractured in ascending layers of quavering luminosity sometimes interrupted by quaint fish curious for us, like we are curious for the world and for each other We gasp out bubbles, release, rise like rafts break the surface gasp again, laugh again, eyes bright. Eventide the world wan and sallow sinks below the horizon The eucalyptus air pushes and pulls with the white callous breath of the moon Grates clatter over hazy shop fronts I am hazy with the day burnt and suffused with the sun I afterglow, lying on the jetty You are a matching brown We match the Earth invisible no one sees us. Dreams vividly gryphons and sabre tooths and grizzlies I possess an untamed mind believe I'll live forever young Refuse a pay a home all deadlines Uncomprehend tomorrow Drink only your laughter taste only your salt until you run dry like the bottom of a well Greener pastures will be mine I scream hurling sand in your lovely face. Miss your hand upon my cheek Miss your coarsely humming tune Miss your sunburnt toes on mine Miss the light behind your eyes Miss the fractured glorious world we held above our sinking angel bodies, fish and us alone, held in blue space for infinity I will stay there and sink with you.
