Sea of Never

Faces shutter too quickly
when bodies pass
on sidewalks and street corners,
in parking lots and rest stops;

their light bounces
through beady eye ports,
like this:
flick
stick
flick
stick
until a crinkly image
penetrates fog,
unfolding as I cognize
another living thing
moving near me.

But one is like another,
is like another,
is like a flick flick flick
with nothing sticking;

I’m lifting my feet,
knees pushing up against
our sun and its moon and stars,

nothing’s moving
forward for never
expect the flicking faces
shuttering through
convex portholes
in a ship deceived by light,
mistaking it for something more.

Continue, ye vessel of wonder,
forward
on
forward
on;
sail this sea of nothing for never;
otherwise, all is useless
flick flick flicking
never stick stick sticking
around.
