SEA POEM FOR SARAH ON HER 21ST BIRTHDAY
AND BECAUSE SHE JUST GRADUATED FROM THE AMERICAN
ACADEMY OF DRAMATIC ARTS IN NEW YORK CITY



The gathering fingers of the one
aaareflecting light
and the roaring
aaaacoming
joyous infallible perfect
Oh molten profoundness
aaaseething
in arcs aaaarolling
aaagathering gathering sun
sun platinum
aaaadriven
land lifted
aaaavoluptuous
satin flawless lustrous
aaaaENUNCIATIONS
leaping leaping leapingaaa up
ragged the arcs
aaamolten white
reflecting aaaaa torn bride-dress mists
aaathe joggers
serious as they gather chi
cerebral oxygen wholly holy
in San Francisco
Saint Francis of Assisi’s city

(June 5 Ocean Beach 1993)– Miriam Halliday Borkowski
