The last bottle of lemonade is nodding

in the rock pool, keeping cold. A childhood,

put away for later. I’m too busy to notice

the sun is going, that they’re packing up,

that it’s almost time for home. The low waves

warm round my knees as I dig in,

panning for light, happy to be here, dreaming

of the evening I’ll wake on the lilo

singing my head off, somewhere

in the sea-lanes to Stavanger, or Oslo.
