After Lída- Neil Slevin

H stops to sniff, lifts a leg

and I remember you said

That’s how they send

messages to each other.


Then after he walks on

I realise I’ll never write

all these words inside

a bottle to pitch into


oceans between you and I.

But still I know the warmth

of sunlight on my skin,

smile with the rainbow.
