We Are Two Boats Docked, By Adrian Ernesto Cepeda

We Are Two Boats Docked
By Adrian Ernesto Cepeda

On the pier, this light rope
clings us together floating
on this water, sometimes
turbulent but I know you
love them waves, at high
tide while I prefer tranquil
stillness of low tide, either
way we live for the sound
of glowing salty midnight
reflections, the water rippling
us closer, like two aging
paramours floating side
by side, when gazing
towards sunset at this isle
of view. Although my coat
has some rust, I love the days
when I can feel you quiver
with anticipation wanting
to sail off together, the ocean
opening before us like putting
ears to seashells, we can feel
our horizon amplify.
