so we died a few times
hinged to rural floors,   pointed doors north
across winter harbours where ships
breathing dark water

lay in wait.  Swimming through (your)  eyes
seeking light,  thirty years a night of  
fragmented  sun until    mornings became

unbroken. Winds unwinding storms,
plugging holes  in turbulent skies,
steering    parched arms
to anchor.
