The wave that rushes to me. Unsweetened. Bare-knuckled. But warm.

[ O C E A N W A V E S ]

The m i l k y BLUE o c e a n w a v e s,

The m i l k y BLUE o c e a n w a v e s, Seafoam g r e e n ACCENTED,

Long d i v o r c e d from

Long d i v o r c e d from TORPIDITY;

Gave me d i s t i n c t SURFBOARD RIDES.

One made me

One made me PADDLE and STRUGGLE

c r i p p l i n g my f e e t.

[ Oceanic rawhide. ]

Neptune's p a n o r a m a PAPERED-OVER.

Another let me STAND b r i e f l y

Another let me STAND b r i e f l y only to s t u m b l e

Instantly.

The sadist surge s l u r p e d my PERSISTENCE.

And made me WITNESS from u n d e r w a t e r

Together with the VOICELESS p e l a g i c

Together with the VOICELESS p e l a g i c Souls of the s p e l l b o u n d SEASCAPES

Her cerulean GRANDIOSE and all h e r GLORY

While SWEEPING me back to the safe shore;

While SWEEPING me back to the safe shore; My comfort zone.

While SWEEPING me back to the safe shore; My stagnation field.

While SWEEPING me back to the safe shore; Tatterdemalion dwelling.

But there is also this LENIENT w a v e

Which gave me an i l l u s i o n of a PROFESSIONAL RIDER,

Which gave me an i l l u s i o n of a PROFESSIONAL RIDER, a FAST-LEARNER or a GIFTED SURFER.

But among these, it was

But among these, it was the OCEAN w a v e which YOU gave to me

The one with WARMTH and i n t o l e r a n c e

The o n e that WRUNG the HASTE out of me

The wave that rushes to me

The wave that rushes to me Unsweetened.

The wave that rushes to me Unsweetened. Bare-knuckled.

Yet there was a SENSATION In those s a l t y p a l m s

An assurance.

An assurance. A guidance.

An assurance. A guidance. A drive.

Always WATCHFUL and fully a w a r e

Always WATCHFUL and fully a w a r e Of the repose's timing;

When to be g e n t l e and when to g i v e

When to be g e n t l e and when to g i v e The ADVICE of a BALM.

It was a TOILSOME but g r a t i f y i n g surfing ride.

[ His wave ]

[ His wave ] was the only wave

That allowed me to t a s t e

[ The bittersweet cup of ocean. ]
