Reconnaissance

sun-19814_1920

By Chris Dingman

the ocean today
is mercury,
stretching across from
and discussing philosophy
with the mostly
gray heavens,
from which the sun
sometimes emerges
in slow
resplendence to dance
as though it were frosting
a cake, or pouring
stars
and i think
were i visiting
earth from somewhere far
today, and seeing
only this, i’d want
to stay
