Too Late

TOO LATE by Nancy A. Reuscher

You should have seen me
on the couch-shaped rocks
at Vouliagmeni,
or further down the Cape
beneath the cliffs at Sunion.

You should have smelled the sea
and seen the moonlight on the
limestone cliffs,
and the pearl white cresting of the waves,
and picked olive branches with me
when I was beautiful.

—Nancy A. Reuscher
