Imperative by Alison Prine19 Dec 2017, Posted by Poetry in
not happiness, not the petal,
not the wing
not the breeze that teases the flesh,
carries the little leaf –
but the rock you stand on
the thick rope ladder, the sturdy wooden boat,
the weathered beam, the dock –
heft and density, thicker than darkness
more pull, older, farther – past
all of us
past even water
