Ocean

1

The ocean flows through raindrops and snow silk curls

and circulates off tongues

in sleepy words-

drowning, manipulating careless longing.

 

2

 

The trees and the flowers

fall together into death,

and you

you rain down to wash us free

to live.

 

3

 

Salty sorrow sinks down inside you;

you raise up roaring.

 

4

 

I'd rather swallow

a blood soaked sword then

the streaks of death

I didn't make.

 

5

 

Serene by the shores

softly tip-toes in the sand.

 

 

Butterflies swim

in and out

swooping up-

within an orange mist-

and down

and you are a blue mist.

 

7

 

You smolder Atlantis in a 

stranger's shielded gaze.

 

8

 

The moon, with its smear,

its smirk and passion,

with its rationing generator of dreams,

is my lover-

and like a lover

I inhale the creations of its soul

and like a lover 

I dance and scream and moan

at night

in day-

and she leads me home.

 

9

 

Once Johnny Castaway held my eye.

 

10

 

I thought the sea was as warm as a snake's

heart smeared across

Nevada concrete, and then

 as cold as the white  storm

swirling in the blistering blue orbs

of a wolf's eye.

 

11

 

You remind her to close her eyes and run.

 

12

 

Our tears are sacrifices

so that the ocean may always wave.

A tide's tears wash away the dolphin blood.

 

13

 

The people are screaming.

The ocean must be remembering.
