Stepping out the back door...

Just by getting enough distance...

NIGHT/SEA


staring into the night as into a sea 
the flow lapping in shadows 
the air swaying on our faces 

the huge sea night makes 
covering us like the drowned 
lifting ever away from us 

is it lonelier as you rise 
or beneath it with the other drowned
