I gave the ocean to a girl (from 1970)

I gave the ocean to a girl

at a bus stop

she tossed it carelessly

into her purse

along with the cosmetics, loose change

and papers of identity

then with a practiced step

she climbed into her regular bus

and disappeared

lucky for me I still had the moon

in my back pocket
