In Breaks

I.

I watched him break
As one dream at a time
Was given up
To grim circumstance

II.

The sea is all
There is none else
Until a gull
Breaks the silence

III.

Upon a branch, a darting squirrel
Goes scampering for life,
The orange cat pursuing —
Then the branch breaks

IV.

She took a break from ev’rything
And left him far behind
She needed to find clarity
Recapture her own mind

And somewhere past assumptions
And the ocean and the trees
Sits her unbroken passion
Naked
Without
Guarantees
