  • Right now in this very moment
    on a deserted stretch of maritime route
    between the blue-green breadth of the estuary
    & the depth of the unbroken ruddy forest
    between the rude precipitous coastline
    & the vast descending heavens
    between the thoughts & cares of a man
    & the man himself, is a heartbeat
    & the central pulse of what it seems
    to be alive
