Incomplete, But I Can See Where This is Going

on an island narrow, shallow in height, and stretching far into the cold water

the night slips across it, stern and starboard, in the form of air or ocean

on your island sailing long and slowly through the night and snowfall

the island surrounding islands and surrounded by islands, two fingers out

out into the infinite Atlantic, two fingers dragging in the water and waves

can you tell the difference between ocean at your feet and waves that cover them?

do you long for the island that longs for the sea, the sound, the sunrise over it?
