semiotics: nothing done in haste

semiotics: nothing done in haste


did she do that
for me alone

her hair done that way
& the turquoise ribbon

not like the women
doing their faces
as they drive to work

making faces
for anyone
done in haste

did she do that
for me alone

the tilt of her shoulders
as she walks along the beach

her hand held
just that way

left foot ahead
of the other

one heel lifted slightly
above the sand

& the entire skin
of her among shadows

leaving me undone
and wordless

this sunken ship
beached beneath the tide

i wave at this picture
of her walking away

saving face
done for me alone
