Have you ever heard the ocean in your spine
– the fluid of the chord, and the chord so intertwined?
However, if you haven’t heard the ocean in your spine,
that awful twist, or having swung too near,
focusing in like a cat with its laid-low tail,
craning for the visuals and details in the merciful
– those intricacies in the pain,
unnoticeable at first and even in the tenths
and twentieth tries to find.
