Hot off the Press – New Poem! Sea, Like a Carpet

Sea Like a Carpet by Duncan Wallace

Sea like a carpet, crinkled up.
Rough movement
Dramatic
Dastardly

Oriental pattern, complicated, stormeee
European abstract
Formless, flowing, free
Whatever you are, you are almost always in a clash
With smoother, deeper piles
Held to the floor with fancy tacks

You are wide and boundless
What’s visible to me
Is constantly fluctuating
Like your being waved in the air, beaten
Tripped over

Constantly at sea
You see, your flexible fibrous nature, is
At One with me
Peace in strife
Calming colours

You are wall to wall
Horizon bound
Socks, no shoes, please
Tints the blue, you see.
