Sleeping in the seas I'm living

Calm in tides of panic

thrashing against my belly

tickling the calves

swirling around the ankles

Eroding the skin

clean in a pale shade


Wrinkling beneath the sun

pruned by drawn

drifting in the blue

past yonder voyages

and carrion men


I whisper to the sky

Hello, hello

See the boats turn

below the pigeons

like minded

fools


Sleeping under grainy dots

Drifting, drifting

- - - - - - - - farther

in a black canvas

wishing

- - - - - - - - upon the stars
