What's Oxygen But A Double Bond? - Poem by Emily Beck

What an accent,
For a bubble trapped.
Fathoms of water separating it from its people.
Dragged down - down - down by squids and jellies,
Up to see the moonlight,
Hiding from the daylight.
Pieces absorbed into the murky
O-H-O.
Although, more like a three dimensional
Upside down
Triangle.
From rocks and star fish,
Up, the mid ocean, swirls of tuna drifting across diamonds.
Hammer heads swimming sideways,
Thousands.
Float across a manta ray fin, forced down
As it glides toward the sky.
Finally a fraction is freed.
Released back to its brethren,
Stories of the great beneath.
Like a computer chip transfer,
The whole sky is blue.
The whole sky is blue.

    Your writing does the same to me. Speaking of, I'd severely neglected reading your poems lately! FU*K! (Report) Reply
