mated for life

purity, elegance
balance, distance

egoless royalty

The Swans of Isla Vista

The swans swim together
mated for life,
dive to their shoulders
necks stained with algae;
they sip along the water’s surface
necks coiling, uncoiling.

On the riverbank
in late afternoon
each grooms its white body.
