On the Sea There Is No Shade
By noon the sky has turned to cream.
The fish are rocking back and forth.
The sea has large, round eyes as if a basin or large bowl.
I write a letter on the oar.
I push the letter out to float.
The sea is and dark.
By night, the stars are kicking in the sky.
The heavens have a search light for a moon.
