new year’s resolutions

I am resolved to let this year dissolve,

to slip into the green curl of surf,

to be absolved.

I am resolved to watch the weather coming down,

to crown myself with a coronet of seaweed,

to swim or drown.

I have a resolve to disarm.

to leave my armour heaped on the shore.

To be washed again

And be fully clothed once more.
