Poetry: Joneve McCormick

Back to the sea

I want to go back to the sea,
deep enough,
where light and dark are one,
where I came from,

back to sea wiggles and wants,
to hungers and reliefs...
I would be a small pebble
or a tiny fish, alive one marvelous moment --
or a big fish snapping up the little
(both are good).

The sea sings,
'the one who doesn't know me is an orphan.'

I would travel to the deepest place I could find
and listen to OM --
beyond the sea floor --
beyond glittering stars

I want to fly now
where my wings first formed.
