tide lines

Coarsing heartlines

traverse unfamiliar terrain:

unfolding the map, I trace them

with watery intent

-yielding to the current,

the here and now which murmurs

of the there and later.

I wade out and letters

envelope me.

I send them on the tide

-these fragile vessels of meaning-

a message in a bottle,

for you.
