POEM: "Reading W.G. Sebald"

Reading W.G. Sebald 

A faithless record skips
as the rent is to yesterday
as chocolate is to strawberry
as the sunset is to love

or last night's quiet cold
as you read those pieces
for the promise and reward
as the augmented notes sing
dreams down an ocean slope

the tired mind goes to muscle
insisting that it must go on
as she looks at you and waves
and nothing brings her back.
