"Any fool can get into an ocean..."
Any fool can get into an ocean
But it takes a Goddess
To get out of one.
What’s true of oceans is true, of course,
Of labyrinths and poems. When you start swimming
Through riptide of rhythms and the metaphor’s seaweed
You need to be a good swimmer or a born Goddess
To get back out of them
Here's the rest, including a reading of it.
Off to wade through the metaphor's seaweed. Back on Saturday.
The roundup is here this week.
