as I understand it life is a boat
A capsize may make you splutter
or even drown in the sea. Get into
gear you may need it. Who knows
what swarms currents and swells
beneath. Strange fishes, flying fish
birds and moths blown out to sea.
Over land. Hard rock in sand filled
coves where the waves lap gently.
Always promising more, changing
often and diurnal like you. The rudder
steady we sail away into the abyss.
