OceaNight

WayneSL Nov. 2012

I dreamed I lay naked
.     on the floor of the star-lit ocean.
some creatures above me
.     floated by asleep
.          while others hid trembling
.                behind coral fans…
and I lay clothed only
in deep, thick darkness.

and though the shark rolled by
.      in deliberate
.          Sinuous
.               Certitude
the greater fear
.      the intolerable unknown
.          the inexorable absolute and Final Dread
was me.
