Given

       Red roofs review
the blue sea: however
clear everything appears
       she complicates
the picture, figuring
elsewhere. As her body
       incorporates
earlier affairs, yours
forgets there were any.
       Remuremu
washes the rocks you’re on:
perennial grasping
       perennial
as the surf grasps for you,
       you grasp for her.

       You gasp for air.

14.1–1.2.1991, Somerfield Street, Christchurch
