Watching The Waters (For Clyde Tooman) - Poem by Orike Didi

We watch the waters go past
Distilled by waves
And dance to an unknown song
From the constellations-
Who knows which spectator will dance last
on the fresh shore,
Work boots strapped to sore feet?

For I who was a witness to holiness,
What will I do than to pour out rivers?
As we sail to a new location,
With feet sucked sore by boots.
