then i find myself turning my back on the planets

depending on the sounds of intimate speech or to say

farewell following the light

shoals of sardines of dolphins of sharks

struggling with dawn drowning i find myself

retracing the flow of time

gaze blurred

by the breakneck speed of the universe
