Grief becomes you, my darling

Paper boats on pebbled beaches

Grief becomes you, my darling,

it makes you create

It seeps into the crevasses you leave

for lovers and hope and little lists of lovely things.

The breaking of your heart is a foghorn

guiding words on hideous seas in paper boats slowly sinking

searching for their drowned sentences on pebbled beaches,

shivering and sore.

It makes you eat but leaves you hungry,

and if paper boats were food you'd never sleep.

If paper boats were money, you could buy a new builder

No more picking up their soggy corpses on pebbled beaches

You could sail a poem

on an unwavering course

straight into someone's heart.
