Poetry #363
(published January 3, 2008)
by Cami Park
I walk this boarded walk without you
the sky a great azure bowl
the sea blue wine

I set your place
with matching bowl and wine
and make the sun our centerpiece

your bones long coral made

my heart, lost currency, a dry sand dollar
rattling and shattered at its core

I honor you with what is missed—
the lapping sea, the brilliant sun, the bone-
scattered sky

Come honor me

sit at this table drink this wine
eat this heart

scatter these bones
