the sea sound

Me Every Day & Night…

Ungrounding Sounds

Audibly nautical, I’ve no
recollection of a boat, know
nothing about any ferry fair,

couldn’t say where ears picked
up sea air, how here sounds
of waves, and wait, won’t open

eyes until my nose can sympathize
with sound, reconcile salt, or else
reassure we’re steady, floorboards

surely safe on shore, no aboard
aberration, no vest able to abort
vestibular disturbance, and wake,

wake, wake anywhere but on the water.

I’ve been ready to return Flint to the sea for a long time.

There were a few requests for deep sea/bio merms so here’s one of those..

Annabel Blackthorn - Lady Midnight

“Annabel Lee” - Edgar Allan Poe


It was many and many a year ago,
  In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
  By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
  Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
  In this kingdom by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love—
  I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
  Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
  In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
  My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsmen came
  And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
  In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
  Went envying her and me—
Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know,
  In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
  Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
  Of those who were older than we—
  Of many far wiser than we—
And neither the angels in Heaven above
  Nor the demons down under the sea
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
  Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;

For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
  Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
  Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
  Of my darling—my darling—my life and my bride,
  In her sepulchre there by the sea—
  In her tomb by the sounding sea.
