Things Occur to Me Moment by Moment
elliptical fan distortion rippling
the surface but
touching nothing deeper than
gliding fish feel not
the least disturbed inches
under the surface,
unknowing the peril from above,
claws or oxygen in too basic form,
our salubrious progenitors strayed
by increments finding feasts
of bugs and plants not
available in the light filtered realms
of constant temperate suspension.
Imagine the feeling of weight!
Do deep sea creatures feel the tremendous pressure
applied to every inch of skin?
Like Water in California
Water moved around California:
Dams, estuaries, tourniquets and flows:
I have dreams all the time now,
but cannot access them at all.
