Sea of Id

from by Cut Teeth



each and every breeze will come to know the coming
the coming and the passing of accumulated cumulus
there’s an incoming fleet, a familiar fleeting movement
defeat is everlasting, like accumulating cumulus

tie down your lines
and parade
perfumed and draped in a lie

each and every wave will come to know the ebbing
the ebbing the flowing of the ever-turning tides
the ides of Marches past have seen and sown new seeds
the needing and the knowing of the ever-turning tides

there may be a novel in the margins
the novelty is paper thin
there may be a devil in these details
but these trains of thought de-rail

the beaches became glass
and we blew them into bottles
which we used to catch the rain
where the acid left the stains
the moon became a map
but we blew that shit to pieces
there were no more tides to tame
so the sun showed us the same

“they swim in the Ego Ocean
but they drown in the Sea of Id”
