the whale

Cover Image

My breath hits the metal with an echoing resolve

My world is dark but I can feel the space begin to grow

With each exhale I feel the whale is pressing on and on

An alien chorus begins of voices from below


My armor keeps me safe until the world is far behind

And I am weightless in the depths of peace and thought and sound

The whale will fall and leave me whole to open up my mind

Until I wish to build a fish that takes me to dry ground
