If people were oceans, you’d be
some place off the coast of Japan,
right in the middle of monsoon season.
At sea level, a bad day is a civil emergency:
You evacuate cities; raze shorelines; swallow ships
– Godzilla hightails it to Korea.
But I’ve slipped untouched beneath
that chaos – gone deep-sea diving:
Yeah, I’ve swum your waters.
The deeper I go, things get more stable.
There’s a whole other world down there:
Undiscovered life forms. Ecosystems.
Don’t freak out, I’m no suicide risk, but
one day I want to drown down there
– swallowed in your depths.
… or at least drown a coffee with you.
You free next Tuesday?
