CONTRA MORTEM: THE BEING AS MOMENT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Between a sea and a sea where the combers meet
Last Line: Between a sea and a sea in the faint starglow?
Subject(s): Time


Between a sea and a sea where the combers meet
in the cancellations of their endless breaking
between a dream and a dream where the night
arrests in eternal waking
between two notes of a thracian song where the flute
stops and an infinite stillness opens what
is it where is it what and where
oh sea and dream and song Will the blurred
images surging ever fill the abyss
toward which they flow Sighing
in the long languid tango of their kiss
will the lovers on that continually dying
wave of sensation ever really know
what they know their drift and their expiring
between a sea and a sea in the faint starglow?
