Gashes

The balcony,
Elaborately carved white balustrade,
spreads across two rooms,
looks out across the blue-green sea cradling
a stone promontory, smooth sloping surface, reaching
several hundred feet above the water

A gash, a road, cuts across its face halfway up and
disappears around and behind it.

The sea cradled their love
until she walked out
Cutting a gash across the smooth surface
and disappearing around the bend.

The balcony,
Elaborately carved white balustrade,
spreads across two rooms,
looks out across the blue-green sea
