Manatee

 

All its age enfleshed

In deep-lined wisdom

 

Swims only enough

 

A round eye of black

Takes in everything

 

Takes you, takes me

 

Through a green liquid

Medium into inner

Space

 

Where energy abounds

And what the elder

Dreams

 

Flashes to merge with

Synaptic feelings

 

Action transduced into

Creation’s lightning

 

Welled in obsidian

Eye of the prototype

Mer-person for

A new world
