A reflection upon the evolutionary inversion from aquatic to terrestrial life.
I used to be Within the Sea
An identity Of You and Me
Submerged In Commonality Of Sounding
Between Airy Heights And Bottom Depths
Through Inseparable Togetherness Of Content with Context.
But, Now, Dry
Abstracted Space comes between Us
A separating distance
An unbecoming Outside
Alienating Forms As Fixtures
Stranded in Isolation; Entities
Oblivious of Our Belonging Together.
Now, moving Fast
Tans our Hides
Protecting Our Inner Spaces Against its own Consuming Presence
Burning Us Out.
But all this sealing
Removes Our Feeling
Setting Our Content At Odds with Our Context
So that we push Against the Pull
With Backs to Front
Itching to Relieve Unbearable Friction.
And So Now Just Let’s Go
And, with Loving Fear
Dive into the Clear
And Swim Where it’s Cool
To be In With the Pool Together.
