I had a dream about whales again. They were so beautiful.
There was also a sea turtle man.
He had grown up as a man but slowly transformed into a turtle, so he eventually went out to sea to live an unusually long life. He came back and changed into a man again to tell us his wisdom; and I started crying at the truth of it all. He talked about being prepared for the crushing nature of the world,
and the enveloping sea
it’s a waterfall.
if you see the buzzing horizon,
you take that breath
as if it will prepare you for the plunge into the depth, the cold
and now, submerged in memory,
the place where you were
and the last
let them bury me
in the river,
to the sea
