The Definition of Soft Fascination

Friday, January 15, 2021

as a frog heart
beating without the frog

and hearts of different sizes
bumping around
inside it

it is best
the sound of the Atlantic
entering a bungalow

from around
a Basque mountain
the old way

windows facing inland
bay’s wind at my back
wakes me looking into dirt

I go trek
and find the coast
I live on

salty wafer of air
cuts early through the bedroom
its rush ricocheting

a blue mind
state while in or near or
under water

that semi-structured white noise
we cling to sort of
soft fascinated

not red mind
overloaded by traffic’s lurch
and connected

so far into I’m
out of it
like a city

or that old phrase
we are
because we were
