The Whale's Song

It sounds a bit like the feeling of watching
honey seep through milk.


A thick, luxurious, gorgeous sound.
A feeling of deep reverberations,


Which echo through a vast, vast
Amphitheatre.


But his stage, once packed with
Kaleidoscope fish and pastel coral,


is an empty shell.
A hollow vessel.


So, he moves on.
And sings to the ocean –


A loneliness you cannot comprehend.
