Bulkhead

Bulkhead 4/12

So I’ve shut myself in – have
made myself watertight

Here I am ocean

Where are your rolling waves
gulls – the dolphin pods

I want to admit the iron in my
veins how green I am in all
things

Ocean – I am Sargasso

Where are your filling waters

These bulkheads do their stuff
and my brain is dry

But everything in here I’ve
seen a million times

These books are done ocean

So much ink – clouds evaporating in sun
