Darkness, Light, Fragmentation

Poetry

By Nicole Eitzen

i.
he can see their shapes, their bodies lurking in the water
sediments of dark, past days: heavy with sediment
moving in slow strides, they churn the water like butter
matter settles at the bottom of the sea
he puts himself with them,
these creatures from the underwater
waters that have made him / waters that now part him, pulling him down towards a center,
its murky waters and deposits: a  place where human life has never been
down, down towards its pit,
engulfed by its green blue treasures,
he wrestles with the water, these creatures from the underwater,
darkness:
he puts himself with them
ii.
light!
water djinn:
he runs along the shoreline,
fingers wrapped around a ribbon, parted lips, cheeks flushed
he has seen them! water djinn:
he has seen the swimming waters!
away from the glaring sun,  parted lips, cheeks flushed
iii.
fragmentation, heavy sediment:
above and under water
down  down its green blue treasures, away from the glaring sun
away, away from the glaring sun/ murky waters, matter settles;
he has seen the swimming waters!
darkness, light, fragmentation
he has seen the swimming waters!
darkness, light, fragmentation,
he has seen the swimming waters,
he puts himself with them
these creatures from the underwater
matter settles at the bottom of the sea
