Sep 2018
the surface of madness
the treasures below
ropes, ramshackle air pockets
afloat, in the autumn sun
gifts and curses are dispensed
by the change of a tide
with mourning grown heavy,
unsteadied the course
(one more farewell to bid)
coexistence of crime
punishment
crime
punishment
punishment
fool oneself twice
for breathing underwater
is no matter for sane souls
.
