Departure

How I've come to sense this thing called departure.
How I still know:  a dark unscathed
cruel something, holding up a delicate braid,
showing it to us again, only to tear it apart.

How defenseless I was, looking upon
that which, calling to me as it left me,
remained behind, as if it were all women
and yet small and white and not quite that:

A waving, already no longer meant for me,
followed by lightly echoing waves --, all
but inexplicable: a plum tree perhaps
out of which a cuckoo, hastily, flew away.
