Where Nowhere Goes
written by: Alan David Gould
That having had a connection with you at all
was only the tenderest chance
in a lifetime punctuated with remembrances
adrift in the longest sea I have ever known
Memories that hang from me
like loosely draped telephone wire during sleep
Upstarts in a billowy bulge of dreams
flowing where nowhere goes
That was all I really wanted to say
My other words just forming a current around those barely visible stones
upon which I rested with you for a moment.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
A poem dedicated to the memory of my mother.
