we rowed out into the gulf in the tinnie
insignificant in a sea of pulsating parasols
close open close open close

sea in a membrane in a sea
the brain a fourleaf
clover tint

singlemindedly pulsing
with outgoing tide
heading for open water

soft plopping on aluminium sides
mile after mile a sea of jelly
so thick

we encased in metal
enveloped in this soft parade

a tin of sardines
in a sea
of jelly

Thanks to Dokashiteru for the beautiful pulsing composition and sensitive playing which lent itself so perfectly to a poem I wrote some years ago.

[I’ve uploaded files of the music without the poem (but including sea sounds) plus a clean dry vocal stem if anyone wants to interpret the poem in a completely different way.]
