have you ever noticed,
how water droplets
slip into each other?
sliding along a smooth surface
until they find one of their kind
and slide in
adding an arm or leg to the amoeba.
surreptitiously seeking
slipping
always moving towards
completion?

what can you say when you watch someone bare their heart?
all i want to say
i will always love you,
but i can't find the words to make it relevant.

inundation

i did a project,
about the historical context of Noah's Ark.
about all these people,
who claim to have found the remains of it.
the battered skeleton of a grand story
a story that everyone knows
and people troop to these four wonderful places
and stare at strangely shaped, spaceship, mangled bits of wood
imagine a white bearded man with a cosy wife,
with a pair of giraffes nuzzling their necks.

and i dove down to a shipwreck once.
and almost choked, because i couldn't really understand how to breathe through a plastic tube
and i saw something beautiful
the sea is always beautiful, when you look at it through a clear pane of glass,
and there were fish
and there was moldy wood
and so many colours, that i was shocked
and it was an old fishing boat, he said
that had capsized some years ago.
