Headlamp leading footsteps downward Air thick with an Impenetrable skin Seams of black unzipped Precious compacted life Of million years scarred Set ablaze in minutes
Living beings coal face Tends to 12 score beached Generations breeching Cool skin of sea Final resting shore Years combined between Ages of whales reach Thousands ever since 50 million years ago Our meddling unseen
Sitting with cool tears Echoing words pouring Into my ears Frontier human carrying Dissapointments Reverberate through My body like funeral Rhythym yet still My heart is beating For the innocent Plight of the whales Putting all our cries Into mere proportion Considering the noise Of their calls Each to each Upon passing Surge waylaid Swell or manmade?
Empty bluestone vessels Walls laden with ancient paint A sociological observation In contrast our lives full of whole Bodies vibrant with first touch of spring Blessing to exist in these times Legitimate love Handed down by generations Of queer folk missing In aisles of pews Meeting in coffee booths And under apple trees Unseen walls of tapestries Growing in knowledge Of the extent of love Found within and without Needing a place to quieten Suspend all judgement Fall into arms of lover All other notions Idealised Idea lies I'd hear lies A gift of the person Placed before me The spirituality of A healthy dose of wonderment
Her face rides out front Body carved by artisan Not a live one steps foot Lest to say farewell Till return to homeland Her likeness revealing The love of artist heart Like a woman of dreaming Unreal onboard Writing home to her Every single day Or some piece to hold onto As tide carries me away
