Breaking Up

Laurie Kolp

And the second question—
what was the first?—
drowned in waves
rougher with each break
breaking waves
like the shell found on shore
of evermore, broken
shallow breath.

Do you know that I
remember your whisper?
Buoyancy, my heart
bobbing up and down
plipp… plipp…
through your breath
with your breath,
answer anchored
somewhere
other than here.
