Exch­an­ging States

my body trem­bles upon this
oceans sur­face
thres­hold of mind
waves reveal
what lies inside

orga­nic effu­si­ons
floo­ding bulk
com­bi­nes with us
swea­t­ing walls
and ceilings

tre­men­dous life­forms
hove­r­ing bene­ath us
ready to be
through our hands

we absorb nature
but fail wit­hin
how can we
call this beast to rest
call this beast to rest
