Another Voyage

Rushing headlong into tranquility
the new silence you wear upon your face
crushes fashion week,
spreads to spiritual magazine covers
and internet photo memes,
then moves the horizon closer—
even though it is anchored
down the beach
ready to board castaways:
survivors of a twilight reconciliation
by those discarded
from the families they cherished.
