Catch Some Wide Eye


i am open line and sea
and you mean nothing new to me
the wells are dug inside your nook
i am the open line you took

the fish swallow our gravity
and you mean nothing old to me
the prey are caught upon your hook
i am the frozen line you took

frozen line and open sea

    Thank you, everyone, for your kind and encouraging comments.

    i chose to use “open line” rather than “an open line” because i wanted to begin with the metaphysical ‘idea’ of an object before narrowing it down to a specific, tangible one. it’s a way of saying, ‘this is the nature of what i am,’ and later on saying, ‘i am this thing, specifically.’

  6. You site is wondeful and want to give you a sunshine award:
