Although I Rarely Walk

Along this golden avenue with eucalyptus lined
I walk, not in a hurry nor loitering nor even with a steady pace

sometimes it seems the trees move faster though

I think perhaps in Europe where I dreamed of going
perhaps in a photo by Cartier-Bresson in a coffee table book

he knew the sort of moments we remember at our best

but really, if you want to know the truth, I rarely walk
if I can find a boat and the ocean allows

and yet along this golden avenue with eucalyptus lined

I see faces I remember, none frowning, all lit up with love
whatever they have come to feel as time rolled on

and we lay down to stop it but went underneath the treads

I think, perhaps, although I do not think of going anymore
all those faces wait for me somewhere, all glowing

so the darkness cannot help but disappear

although we will not have the names we had
or a boat, or an avenue, but only light

and all our ashes of love back on fire.
