Woman Watches Ocean on a Reef through a Glass-Bottomed Boat
In the ocean one fish
swallows the other:
a geometric progression of
You are bigger than I.
The calamity of love
swelling out larger than us.
And what destiny partakes of
Swallows the cause and effect:
eyes and kissing mouths and enlarged
parts wanting to breathe and wanting.
There is no gentle sense to this.
Only a kind of terror
at the chain
of events, the scale of loss, the ordered
destruction one against the other-
all that something larger
awaits its moment.
