Poem – “Deep Sea Blue”

Deep Sea Blue

Drift do they like the dried blood of Atlantis
Ever deeper in green fluorescent murk
Eventide closes its eyes to ghostlike darkness
Para-natural phenomena

Shipwrecked patterns, skeleton of the galleon
Eager but disturbed bones rise from sleep
Awakening aglow in the sea’s base epidermis

Black waters bring the rattling cries,
Litanies of ancient, bacterial animals hidden
Under the ruins, under the ships, under the light
Eternal and blind as the eldest life
