Dried-up Sea Bottom Blues




i'm the big fool
who's laughing now?
no one i know

its like i wove
this net as if i didn't know
i'd be the one drowning in it

and not without tangling
a few beautiful creatures
in it before i sink

but oh that deep
silence at the bottom
beckons still

and the darkest blue
i've never seen
is waiting for me there

the only incongruity?
the ocean left
this lonesome place
a million years ago
