losing the ocean,
a primer, a grammar, a grimoire.
I'm going down the gullet of the sea.
no awe no more what's done is dull,
a treatise a treaty a tree.
oldest cities, circle stone
the branch that bears down on the house
the stone age the sun, the travellers tales
things never have been or be
oh god oh god what have we done
a mistranslation from the Greek
this Western mind, eroded beach
