Cast Out

1970's




A line...
Cast out...
Far from shore...
Down to the deep...

Hapless line...
Now taut...
Now loose...
Like a line to life...
As the cast... sinks below.

The depths...
Life below...
Float past...
Glance with disinterest...
Busy at life...
Come to nose around...
Then flip away...
Not to touch...
Picking a depth...
And gliding away.

Lifeless life...
Of no interest to most.

Deeper...
And the darkness consumes...
Writhing angry life...
Peaceless life...
Like a seed of destruction...
Come to life.

And life struggles with it...
Against it...
With it...
Against it...
Til it sets around it...
In recognition of its destiny.

Life courses...
Fulfillment in the deep
      dark parts of a soul...
To meet a strange ecstasy of life...
Light in the depths...
Light in the dark...
Life in the graveness of the world...

Deep life...
Touching the line...
Shakes to the shore.
