EVEN OUR SMILES RHYMED


even our smiles
rhymed
once upon a time

these dunes
that summer
us students of kisses

both of us
majoring in the inexact science
of the making of love

all that love
now only photographs
never ever looked at

not realising that
we had it
when we had it

these dunes that summer
now just a seascape
like any other

stripped of memory
the sea merely sea
the sand only sand

hard now to think
what I meant to you
what you meant to me

somewhere along the years
we lost
each other
