Best Poem of Alek Lenth

Whale Of A Tale

The ship, it sinks
And to my loss
A cable grabs my leg

I take a breath
And see the sailors
Scream bubbles in despair

And as the last light ripples
A whale comes
And drifts

The whale gives a strong
But melancholy song
And I see her eat
Each thing that peeps
Bubbles, feet and all

She grabs the anchors
Of the ship
And with me
Starts to fall

In the blackest of her eye
She tells a tale:

The whale wanders
From shoal to pole
Skirting her calfling along
With the tip of her fin
She smiles at ...

Read the full of Whale Of A Tale


'All in a row they hurried, scurried
scaring feather out of snow'

LopLop sits upon her thrall
anointed queen of Goth and Gaul:
hailing the winds,
eating snow, rock, and sand
eating salt
