The Sea Cannot Touch

The sea cannot touch me now
nor the sky
in this room whose arms are
your arms

They would spell the night
I took you for my wife
I do not think of candles in that church
Though they were there

the priest the words though they
were there
I think only of your sad
beautiful face following

the nothing there/the nothing
to construct our lives with/hoping
the singing birds would come
and house among its branches
