Atlantis

Document
Cover Image

With the coming and going of green tides


Fathomless seas where dreamers pause, awestruck


by chaos


Holding you I have forgone the pattern -


golden threaded stories,


my tentative drawings in the sand


To understand you


Patiently waiting for a sign to


break the crimson glass and set


blackbirds free upon the wind


To find yourself in the middle


of a sigh,


an outbirst of outreaching echoes


Blinking salt.


Unlocked, the copper-cage sits


tiny and bone-brittle against the ivory island


Inside it captures fragile feathers, urchin-breath,


cloudbursts and star-words,


your melodies, my moonbeams (yes)


and mermaid-hair and sea-shells


and you cannot hear the ocean


and I'm sorry
