DEEP BROWN SEA
May we gather in a cathedral made of water and mud
where the heart beats like a drum
and humming is devoid of human sound.
The laboratories, obsolete, now give away their secrets
collected in iced pearls that once cascaded from mountains.


In Deep Brown Sea the world is simple and enormous. It is a giant vessel that is largely empty. Every move and word echo for years. There are no transitions, nothing is to be arranged or to be accounted for. Words come and they are true, full. At this underwater level below the mud there is no consequence. Action isn't followed by reaction and so there is nothing that has to be done.
