The O of the Sky
The ebbing O of the sky the submarine man sees before he closes the hatch now appears in her eyes as I close those eyelids. Grief floats by, and in the sonar she can hear the jelly flesh of it. In the sea ebony surrounding, her neon heartbeat gybes up and down searching for some feed bearing the weight of the consciousness. I wonder she could think about me as the last sky seen before drowning. Cabin Song Your cabin in the forest appears wearing different shades of silence night now and night then. Right here in our I'd the cabin shivers in a fever akin to near-death. We still our breath, and yet air rotates in the assembly line of the breathing. The lord of the noise, now and then, blesses the Infestation of crickets. I say, "Take your pills." Earlier "Efficacy," tweets a bird, perhaps doesn't but my mind traipses on a tight-rope in the haze while sleep writhes and bleeds away. Mornings mould words out of the noises and razes through all locations. I lament over wiping of the sleep's precipitation. "Efficacy," tweets the bird. One young deodar quivers between the meanings and the words. One street sweeper joining the work greets a tired street walker returning. Nothing's absolute there.
