the Underwater Powers

Tyler Sherman -

the Underwater Powers

Whiling away the hours
The underwater powers don't

Keep a floating head
Above the waters.

Despite the strength
Of lighter gasses

The rising turgid sludge,
It passes down the line

The weight and meter
Of the feeder, upriver

Like jingling keys
Along greased splines.

The weight that has
Been meted out was

No equity. And hence
Propound the piling

On top of ready piles,
Ready piles on the ground.

It's all around here
Now. It's ailing, aiming down.
