(The first part from Middle English cauceweye, either from Latin calx, calcis (“limestone”), or alternatively from Latin calciāre (“to stamp with the heels, tread”), from calx (“heel”). The second corresponds to English way. Causeway: A raised road upon which to walk, made of stone, over a body of water.)
As we walked the causeway
Over the river,
to the beach,
“Can we stop?
I want to look out over the water,
Watch the moon rise above and below.”
Of course. I wish everything people asked
Was that easy,
But most of the time what people ask
I just can’t give them.
Make me happy.
Hold me together.
Let me bruise you.
Make my head stop hurting.
