Sea Exposure

 

It’s a thin water

no teacup, saucer,

which ruins cars,

siding, door & window

framing

 

the thing & things that

contain(s) the hu-

mans.

 

Swallows, both bird

& action, can inter-

act with the process—

 

which is to say, a swallow

can birdbath & a swallow

can press down on a button

of lifelong addiction—

 

which is to say ruins

the thing & things that

contain(s) the hu-

man.

 

drag it out, frozen, onto

the roof of the world,

but the water

will eventually

decode any obstacle.
