In every life, a room somewhere, by the sea

                                          - after Louise Glück’s Presque Isle

a room somewhere, just five minutes
from the sea
the sea is you
the you who appears in poetry
they ask me about you

                                                how you it is
                                                to inhabit such spaces
                                                in this you of a poem

a room somewhere
is every you
is five minutes from you
the sea
                      is a room              / somewhere                       / the sea

the poem appears
in you.
