You will find your life
on your tongue
between your teeth
to spit out and strike the gong.

Let your quivering lips
rest and save your breath at times.
Think of a few tips
and spare the restless chimes.


The bird zooms,
And we sail on
Looking down, down below
folds of cotton wool

Make a thick cushion.
Blending in contrast
seems to provide
support and reassurance.

under the sheets

In case we capsize,
Nine thousand feet,
Belts fastened
For a swoop down
A dive into the sea
