Sea-Change - Poem by Jennifer K. Sweeney

after the waiting years leaden years
keening oceanside for an answer
from the original dark
you emerge distinct
one life perpetually not-there
then suddenly at work with long division
sac of cells we
watched in the flux
via negativa
you eddy forth little blue fish
little big heart
to be here with me now
means we made a study of
insistence means
I will not forget the profound
absence from which
you began
