I go deep in

Sinking in

The endless fault line

Digging in

Brittle nerve ends

Ploughing in

Pointed

Ragged edges

Deeper still

Shuttering my eyes

Looking

Bellowing

Beneath the river of salt

Stars, sparkles

Glimmerings of meaning

Bathing

Plunging

Diving in

Piercing knowingness

Deeper still

Breathing

Slowly

Breathing, Breathing

Murmuring

Thought-lessness

Droplets of quiet

Seeking completed

Am still.
