TUESDAY: Small Craft Warning

BY DIANNE KORCHYNSKI

Your body is like butter
your voice smooth as chocolate
Or is it the other
way round?

My ragged nails betray me.
A small craft rises and falls
swallowed by the distant waves
out on the ocean
always manages
to keep its head above water
to progress /past/ my
limited field of vision

Hawai’i, June 2012
