Dark Angel II, 53

The jetty lights,
a pale glow of halos
against a darkening sky
like tall angels standing.

It is quiet.

They walk along the shallows,
reflections rippling in the lights,
smooth lines rolling in,
curving around rocks, creeping onto the sand.

So quiet
they can hear the moths
tapping on the lights, the soft coo of pigeons
nesting under the planks,
the shells and pebbles tumbling
in the sea.

Maggie links her arm in his,
the second time she has done this,
and smiles,
remembering the first time.

the first time
