“Another Water”

by Jade Nicole Beals

Could stop one with a kiss. 
You said you’d seen your heart like ice— 
I found it sweet ice, essentially,

the fruit. I’ve thought of you 
as pure onyx, emerald afire, 
glowing the whole sunset hour,
cooling in the dark, inspired.

I am at the beach,
listening to the ocean waves, eyes soft,
almost closing, gazing downward, I wonder, 
What is this music I've heard before?

It is the lines you measured
the ebb and flow of water
with ocean wave cymbals 
that I can still hear from here 
without you here.
