Within the Sea
In collaboration with Alena Alexandrova
Pour some salt water over the floor
Ugly I'm sure you'll allow it to be:
Suppose it extended a mile or more,
That's very like the Sea.
I had a vision of nursery-maids;
Tens of thousands passed by me
All leading children with wooden spades,
And this was by the Sea.
They take me a walk: though tired and stiff,
To climb the heights I madly agree;
And, after a tumble or so from the cliff,
They kindly suggest the Sea.
I try the rocks, and I think it cool
That they laugh with such an excess of glee,
As I heavily slip into every pool
That skirts the cold cold Sea.
Poem: A Sea Dirge by Lewis Carroll
