Satellite


It is night when I visit
here, not far off the lake
curling into my sneakers,
breakers and whitecaps
silent at this distance.
There is so much noise
out there. Stars wink
out over the horizon
and they are gone, gone—
maybe not stars at all.
On this anniversary
of nothing I see your face
vanish over the water
and it is love, not
your body, that is missing.
