Perception

ocean through the pines
whistling
with the hiss of sun-hot
stones
& rain
splotch on the hollow sinew
of croaking toad-
meat mucosal eyelids peering
to the mountain’s summit
where the puffy egg-sac clouds skate
in bulbous cloister
gathering at the high atmosphere
near
the water’s edge

author’s note:
because we metabolize water molecules
at this density
we live
on what we call
land
