Milestones

We sit there, oracling,
drinking for ages; we
chat about different drinking-ages
and different countries;

sun sets in liver tinge;
pigment of the stream cooling,
fibers of our thoughts unreeling,
we sit there, eyes on nil.

We sit there, nothing,
and water pegs down our shadows
as if those will be its
Maypoles and whee – time will swing by.
