leave it with the titanic

i
write underwater
to hear my own thoughts
a great lake
or
an ocean – shallow
but
deep
green and clear
outside of world cultural
or
interference –

i touch blue and muffle
out any words
of
doubt

– here the character is
evolving
his age is sanded down
polished by
a slow
deep current
and death gives him
an objectionable
faith
a quality of eye
to see the sentences
before the
typewriter types
them into foundation
and archival
status

– someday when i am ready
the submarine
will rescue
me
things will be under
stood, briefly
and kept sanitized in
the liquid
form of under glass
currents and solutions
in a plastic
bath
container
this my world of
study
and lost mystery

no

longer natural
rhythm
