[Poem] Ba

 From the moment I met her
        She's been wiggling,

                         This way and that
                         Like a naughty young nak

        Or a baby pla buek
        Who dreams of wide seas.

I'm only inviting her to visit,
My words a humble net of black line
She slips through every time.

Just when I think I've got her,

         Surprise, she's changed again into something
         Almost immortal

Splashing in the pools of my memory,
               Swimming just out of reach

While I stand upon the beach, laughing
Beneath hot stars opening the door for night

              And my dreams, where she's so much easier to hold on to.
