#Poem Not this / Not that

A supposedly burdenless list
to map it all
neatly
like you have forever
to balance meticulous detail
like you have forever
to forget treachery
or upgrade it
like an idiot

Back to the old harbour
the ships at anchor
massive iron chains

A stupid naivety
wakes you in darkness
cuts your eyes

Remember the mid-tide
the birds and smooth water

Only this
nothing else
