Last Stop

Kevin Connery

Chris Williams

i. 

 

The ocean hasn’t stirred

in two months.

We’ve been watching

one another.

 

You stopped waiting for me

a millenia ago, and I’ve

been here, ever

since. Her voice

 

echoes cross the water, 

dissipating with the mist. 

I’ve been trying

 

to catch death out of

the corner of an eye.

 

The fragments wash away

like footprints in 

the sand.

 

 

 

ii. 

 

A seagull came in today,

over the interminable ocean.

I ask if she saw you,

had any news…

 

 

iii. 

 

I wander the empty 

halls. Look at

the tapestry.

 

Was it always empty?

 

I seem to remember

running feet.

voices

 

 

iv. 

 

I call your name.

 

And listen.

 

 

v. 

 

The seasons never

change here.

 

The greenery is

always the same.

The cyprus trees

neither grow 

nor sag.

 

 

vi. 

 

I watch the ocean,  

and try to remember

your name,

but that’s gone, too,

in this land.

 

The footprints in 

the sand, overflowed

and scattered. 

Embarking ships.

 

I’d like to capture 

footprints in the sand,

and bottle them,

for a rainy day, if it

ever rains.
