sea to song

entry picture

effective myth, metaphor, & mysticism transcend

semantic efforts to articulate dynamics erupting

dreamlike amidst more trusted, linear conceptions

of reality, imagination, experience, & being

 

by presenting arrangements so engaging, uncannily

familiar, irreducibly insightful, idealogically slippery,

that the foamsplash suddenness of its crashing

across a previously unnoticed beach of the soul

 

halts, a moment at least, the crab mind’s clacky

par sing, littoralizing, frAming, & other filiblustery deversions

from the ultimately undefinable unknowability of

who, where, why, what, & how we are

 

when the wave’s final fizziness surrenders to sand

& its borrowed water slides back to the unconscious

’s vertiginously assoceadivₑ c, & eventually to clouds

clinging with pristine crystallinity to what once

 

flowed & shimmered below, & shall again, surely,

upon not only the rivery world but also the infinite

inner landscape, which somehow both consists of,

& is rendered by, spirits singing themselves into being

 

& signaling kindredly peculiar mysteries to one

another through mediums shared & sustaining,

not unlike whales scattered in the twilight

depths & the deepdark, vibrating sea to song
