    Washed up on silver shores
    you emerged from the sea
    in the lilac dawn of summer
    you came to me in a dream and,
    where are you now?

    I imagine you in an empty room
    writing poetry in white light
    exactly where I left you
    in an old world somewhere pretty

    It’s winter in New York
    and you’ve got the
    brightest eyes in California
    this house still smells the same
    so transformed, yet nothing’s changed

    Stumbling down sun-drenched streets
    sped up in your torn blue jeans
    you came to me in a dream and,
    summer died too quickly.
