Sink me in the ocean
Where I could live again,
Over and over for a hundred million years.
Float me along the currents,
With the plankton and the curled tails of horses that don’t wear saddles
And the lions with whiskers and fins.
Where the spots of a whale shark sweep me over like stars,
Where I leave behind A4 papers for stingray bellies and nightlights for angler fish bulbs.
And if somewhere a school bell rings
It would sound like nothing more
Then the rustling of tangled tentacles
Or the echo of dolphin laughter.
(and its a little bit funny,
How we always seem to laugh together)
Call my name
I won't reply,
Sorry, I'm too deep in the sea.
