Something #2

Desrosiers rearranged my poem, Something #1, in the comments ("a cool Robert Creeley-ized variation I made by deleting stuff and mostly ignoring scansion") to that post. So now we have this collaborative piece:

Something #2

sitting on the beach
looking at the sea.
nothing to be seen
the ocean swells,
underwhelming me
I’m mesmerized:
sky, horizon, sea.

"earth is flat" The sea
aligned with that.
nothing to see.
ocean swells.
I see a splash
out of nowhere

surface of the sea...
sitting on the beach
remembering the splash
the swells

nothing left to see
until that splash
