an elegy for wilson

I watched him drift away at sea
A floating idea incarnate
And I was too weak to save him
Without killing us both

And I waited all alone
For a ship to carry me home
Just me and my collected grief
And the saltwater and the sun

And all he was, was my dearest friend
And all he was, was a dream
And now that I’m where I belong
I wonder why, and I’m sorry
