We flooded the basement and adopted a whale.
We packed our resumés with false qualifications.
We found the best pho, hidden in the suburbs.
We couldn’t decide between chartreuse and pink.
We never knew for sure whether you meant it.
We left clues for those who would come after us.
We told terrible lies without meaning to.

Day broke. Upon the waters broke
in waves on waves unbreaking and
night fell, unveiling in its wake
one perfect whitened rib of land.
I slept, and while I slept I dreamed,
a breaking wave, a flowering tree,
and all of one accord I seemed.
I woke, and you divided me.
