Trail: sea

Both elbows on the table, I covered my face with my palms.
Inside that darkness, I saw rain falling on the sea. Rain softly falling on a vast sea. with no one there to see it. The rain strikes the surface of the sea, yet even the fish don’t know it’s raining.
Until someone came and rested a hand lightly on my shoulder, my thoughts were of the sea.

@SONG: Me & Jill, SonicYouth


We had just left shore when everything began to happen at once
the water came in and we started to go down
i looked at jill and she looked back, thinking it would be alright to go down
then the railings broke and the motors gave out
the hall emptied out and no-one was left for the band
the amps all wet, speakers burst, soaked

we, up three flight now, tried to meet up with the galley crew
but it seemed everyone had gone
we had a smoke to pass some time
jill said ``I’d love to, right now
what could i say, we did while the waters rose, licking our feet
it was fun and funny so we laughed
I loved the way she could laugh, so full bodied

when we hit the sky we were high over the rooves
a field of gnarled antennas coiling upwards
waves and waveforms joining in a nice hot blast
so different from the boat
the cold silver sky opened for us and we passed through
last i saw of jill she was heading into the coils of the antennae
laughing, so beautiful
saying she hadn’t yet had her fill of the boys there and the electricity
saying she wanted to plug in again and fry a bit
i said ``watch the water love
she kept laughing and shook her hair
she said ``I’d love to, right now, you know”
so we did, and had a smoke too, and her lips parted
there in amongst the coiling snakes of an antenna she looked right at home
the waves came up and a blinding flash caught me dreaming of her
as she looked all crossed with wires and sparks watching the blast
everything went orange and all my thoughts dissolved inwards in the cloud

i thought one last:
how different from the sea is the boat

You should not tease
And play tricks
For a laugh

Do you see her walking
The bluff for a high?
She will not know
When to quit walking, or why

A great sea beneath her
Forbodes “you will die”
She laughs at the thought
For so far she has kept very dry

She cries and she heaves
That her sides, they may break
Oh, the lapping that purples
Her ragged red cheek

“Be you coddled and cocky
I’ll have you for eats”
Cries the great sea
And drags her below by her feet

And swallows her whole
Down below
For a treat
