providence

enter the skinny kid in skinny jeans
puffy silken letter jacket
i laughed out loud

a lens focused to view you

as the afternoon waned and chilled
i began to see you

your eyes
your voice
your laugh
your manner

as i loved you at fourteen

my fierce wish for you

a chaise lounge
a good woman
the warm sea air

your beloved ocean.
