Amethyst

Amethyst clouds 2

—San Juan, 1960

I step to deck through hatch
into gloriously saturated amethyst

my ship on swells at bobbingdusk
on seas of lavenderglass
the ship’s gray steel lilac-imbued

sky’s hue too all upon rippleless
slow swells of liquid glass shifts
as if upon a sheet of blown cellophane

as if  ………..
as if—
just drink, my eyes insist

I’m indistinct and boundless
in risingfalling amethyst
