An Age - a beautiful poem about dislocation of childhood by Laura Jensen (b.1948)

by kal00ma

There is a growth that hurts the child

one was, the child who still knew

the ocean rock from a distance,

flocked like cloth, white like sugar,

a flower out of focus in the waves,

the waves, the thousands of horizons

seen again and again as blue Japan--

something that changes the freighters

twined with lights and evergreen

in the port of Seattle.

I remember being nowhere in the early light,

halfway over ocean to a northbound freighter

and walking back to my sister

where our white wood caught fire

in the white sand.
