My Sinking Heart

I wasn’t there.

I almost lost you

Because I wasn’t there.

Your curious baby feet

Slipped on the round wet lake rocks

And for a moment

You were lost to the air.

All the while

I sat in a bookstore

Reading and drinking coffee,

Never knowing

What was happening

At the water’s edge.
