Back and Forth

Back and Forth

The ferry carries the people in its jaw
Before the island you need to see water

all around you The smallness of your
eyeball The smallness of that empty

stroller The large ferry’s smallness
which seemed so large leashed to land

To forget what is in front of you
look through it Another thing lingers

in the hall These shapes are always
faint They want to be seen but only

barely The ferry won’t let you any closer
any faster This test is about distance and

decisions The problem with logic
problems is all the left-out elements

Sure, you’re heading from the mainland
to the island But you’ll get there when

you get there Let the water work on
you This planet is an island
