marine dream

the creature thrashed
a seal

or a dolphin

thrashed again

raised a spray
that stopped him
in his tracks
forced
to close his eyes

opened to a new scene

a line of guardian penguins
waddle-ambling formally
around the guard-line
of a dream

he closed his eyes

do not fear

a voice

a thrum

a resonation

you are the whale

I am
inside you

you swallow mw
and swallow me
yet

here
I am

thrashing before you
a creature
foolish without
my element

and you
my old
harpoon

will you dive now

thrust yourself
down
into the waters

dodging
the march
of swimming penguins
waiting the tables
on the perimeter

choose
from their menu

this is your dream

I
am inside you
