Wave your flag!
You could hear the silence all around it
Proofs of potency
but never an answer
to the question why
And one did land, did land in you
I smile and wave in slipping sand.
We share a joke. You shake my hand.
I see your foot as I sink down.
You run along. You’ve things in town.
Had I but had
a picture of that
I’d trace the path
that runs from shore
to the steps
to the porch
to your front door
