Best Poem of Jay Alexander

Translucence

The waves break like signs
Rise and fall,
Crash into spraying light,
Bright, tight, hold,
The shards unfold,
Beneath a gaping sight,

Stone unturned,
And burn into a loose mind;
Once more an umpteenth time,
Smash onto the shore,
Fiery bright.

It is linked, it is brushed aside;
A drained dream jumping, a wide line,
