  • flow ocean over these dead weights
    absorb anachronisms in your depths
    let the world's springs run anew
    fresh currents of birth and youth
    set their course for a tidal surge
    flowing and freeing oceanic change
    I may not know this flow in my time
    and you may not be buoyed in yours
    but they are circulating in the deep
    older and deeper than we can know
