The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Whale

We are not what we might be; what we are / Outlaws all extrapolation / Beyond the interval of now and here: / White whales are gone with the white ocean.
— Sylvia Plath

Whale print, Olympic National Park visitors center. Port Angeles, WA.

you're a sure whale with soft scales

big as the ocean is wide 

your fins, giant fans fluffing the water

how long since the Octopus ran its tentacles against your grains

take me down

into the ocean

a mystic cave of water and whispers

bright lights and fixtures

cover your walls

swallow me in your belly

lets sit on your corduroy couch together

you're big, whale

so big

lets sail this world

hand in hand
