swimming with maroon waves
a broken sun setting on an endless horizon
ocean boiling, tempering imagination
simmered to disfunction,
and then function.
beneath chaos, quietly
sanded planks tidied as a boardwalk
and skipping over the ordered lines-
and then non-thought.
heat bubbling up to meet the feet
skin guarded to withstand hot coals
tip toe with agility across the cracks
and then squander back
to dainty quarters.
a thread to weave the will-
fingers lingering on an un-sewn answer
unknowing, and again-
and then meeting.
