Dark Sea An AudioTextualPoem by Robin Ouzman Hislop



                                                                  Dark Sea

What can steal on the march of time

time that has passed time that is to come

on the dark sea of matter

within & without

gravitating       gravitating       gravitating

language is barely sufficient for it

in our mortal transit

in a universe which is forever a phantom face

its unresolved visitations

                                                  touched & untouched

                                                                          my cat mind                    my dog mind

as different as                                      chalk & cheese

it calls for a comment on our mysterious cosmos

in its great indifference to us

which we inhabit rather miraculously more than

the mere mathematics of matrix & fractal

but as self regulating networks together

with the brainless networks

where we may spread our membranous wings

& harvest angels on the dark sea                            within & without
