The Harbor Doesn't

by Brian Jones

Added 6 July 2000

The harbor doesn't.
It's doubtful that it even could.
How much water can it hold?
It wouldn't matter if I knew.
The harbor doesn't.

It simply cannot hold enough.

Eyes wander.
Smiles stay Here.
But thoughts go home,
whether they are
on the mind or not;
because the harbor doesn't.

The strangers' faces,
strangely, aren't,
but neither do they comfort.
Walking by them
is more like floating by.
It wouldn't matter if I knew them.
If they were a sea of friends, still,
the harbor doesn't.
