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
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.
