dancing on the jetty

who are you?
i would have passed by
but for your words
 
green ebbs and waves
know but do not
conflate and conjure

my sailing ballast
mooring by rock anchor
greening my senses
reaching the quay's end
with you.

(The title of this poem is a reference to the song of the same name by INXS, from their 1985 album The Swing. "Watch the world argue, argue with itself. Who's gonna teach me peace and happiness?")
