I should stand on the shore
take up a great shell
and blow a trumpet song
to the whales who stay
always just beyond sight.

I have no shore
on which to stand
and had I one, I lack
the skill to pluck
a song from a shell
and so the whales
I imagine offshore
must listen carefully
to the song I cast
deep within my dreams.
