Finished.


Explorers

 

They drive down to the beach

Inside the wheels of metal architecture.

 

To snare the waves

And sunburnt stars.

 

To trace the tides

Back to the whirlpool.

 

To hunt the mermaids

Behind the rocks.

 

To conquer marine lands

Of delicate jewels.

 

To bruise the heavens

With instruments of sight.

 

To chain the sky and sea

Into one topography.
