Sam Caldwell – Below The Dock

 

BELOW THE DOCK

 

She casts long shadows

and he sings to that form; the figure of a girl

Turn- her answer to a humble melody.

Where none have slept

they all dream at different times.

This man is still-

in spite of the wind,

and there it is again.

The girl is awake and searching for sound.

 

Sam Caldwell is currently working towards a degree at UBC Okanagan.  She is an aspiring poet and hopes to one day memorize the dictionary.  She also feels the word “effervescence” is taken for granted, and that poetry has the capacity for magic.
