by Margarita Serafimova
The plenitude of sunset seas
was forever you.
Who was time to speak of an ending?
I was seeing the sunset through tall waves, lucent, golden.
My love was letting me go.
I was going East.
Donousa stood in its seas, its white cape –
frozen in light as their reflections.
You were there.
