The Tide’s Delirium [pc]

Posted to Poetry




Show me the way to the next moon’s gravity.
Imperceptible force, on all water bodies.

Tell me the secrets of the seaweeds
Plants that grow in water, salt filled water.

Find me one droplet that contains no salt
Or has any crystalline life forms teeming.

If I could have one hour of the tide’s
Delirium, I could gather all the foam.

I could see the unfolding of life at the edge
Of the rock and wind torn landscapes.

I could hear the howl of the barnacles
When the receding tide leaves them exposed.

I would find the one droplet of salt water
That is filled with a world within a world.

Then I could make pictures and sounds
So that you could find them all too.
