She Sees Him

sipping

Earl Grey
from the
Flora Danica porcelain

                                         she
tastes traces
of his mouth


singing
echos of Nirvana
at speed

                                         she
plays a fingerprinted disc
again

walking
loose-linked hands
cutting steps
in the sand

                                         she
closes her eyes


kissing
like a ravenous hyena
or a sucker fish

                                         she
runs her tongue
around her lips
licking for flashback

laughing
too loud
loving too high
alive> < evil a
beach-bleached
white paradise

                                        she
tugs a necklace memento
the cowrie shell grins
hanging solo

sleeping
sugar-spooned
calm breath
arm-wrapping
dream-napper

                                       she
stays awake

sinking
through pot-holes
shark shoals
foiled
wrapped
and crushed
weeping scars
bleeding
raw words
hushed

                                      she
could not save him
