His pulse aligned with the ebbing tide Foam-flecked sand awash in moonlight Losing track of the night beneath the waves...
Time walked a straight path from the morning On a collision course with rapture Then all melted in a haze of something like color, but more A distant scream was a song on the breeze
How heavy the empty space lies over heaving ocean And stars spark together who know nothing of constellations
