Primeval Sea

Out of the sea primeval;
Leaving lightning and dense electricity
Down in Neptune's reign; here in
The gardens of relative paradise
Weather is quiet; there be
No roars of thundering.
The twisted sirens float
Casually on the sea face
Sea bosom by accident and
Probability; we caroused by night
And at first light went to
Sleep the day profound.
For carousal of the night
The lights of the sun were
Lost upon us.
When we woke we had the
Very edge of sunset then
The dusk.
Then
The night.

Iron seas
Morphed fishes
Continually
Rocks
Heights
Liquid
Giddying
Still
Gulping
Waters
Immense
Fish

Slow
Predators

Bleak
And
Raw
In
The
Seas
Night
Soon
Comes
Every
Day
The dark
Relative
Grows
Darker
Darker
Darker
The
Sea-waves
Up
On
The
Beaches
Rustling
Rustling
Rustling
In
The
Sperm

Night

Out of the sea primeval;

Casually on the sea face
Sea bosom by accident and

And at first light went to
Sleep the day profound.
For carousal of the night
The lights of the sun were
Lost upon us.
When we woke we had the
Very edge of sunset then
The dusk.
Then
The night.
