St. Robert of Newminster

the only way to love

is to leave.

I waved from the wide deck

of a ruddy ship

laced with barnacles.

devotion takes over,

covers my mouth

before I lean over this railing

to scream love is the way home

and I am being thrown off course!

my compass hands spin.

you will enter into a life

without me.
