tiny fish

all day I felt like a waterfall was breaking through my chest

that birds flew in and out of the rainbow spray

nothing assailed this vision
nothing became stagnant or blackened

the water that fell there ran white down to the sea
with tiny fish borne along speaking in bubbles

and there it dived beyond human comprehension
into deep trenches
where unknown creatures wafted and swayed

I alone of the pirates
had made it back
