i remembered
the conversation with the anesthetist,
he said place your thumbs over your eyes
and press gently, and i replied isn't that
and no i can't feel my hands but i'm
not really bothered, i will sleep
sleep and sleep, i won't need them,
and please keep an eye on the sea til i
wake, it might pack up its fish and
go travelling, it might leak through
the holes in the earth like a sieve,
all the shipwrecks and sharks will
be homeless

(i don't believe in anything, and that makes me a liar because i believe in that)

Confusion. When I press my eyes, I see circular fractals. Designs incomparable to reality.
Do the voices praise you in the darkness? I've heard they don't. Just ask Ian McCormick. A man who survived the attack of 6 box jellyfish while diving. One will kill you. No matter where it hits. If you are not given proper care.

Life.... It's so fragile. I'm still debating what to do with "this" one.

Excuse me, make that 5. The number of grace.

...Once again, I have no words. Why do your poems always leave me so speechless..?

(the sea, she won't go anywhere without you
she'll wait for you to wake up and she will take you anywhere
she'll wait for your lullabys to fall asleep 
she'll wait for your call to leave anywhere
when you walk on the beach,
the waves will always try to reach you

she needs you, you don't realize,
she is weak and you give her worth)
