This island stretched and laid out
face down in the ocean,
a blight in her back.

I am half as big as the universe
and half as small

Heaven sent me to you,
through blue, red, pink, yellow, blue—
the deep is the graveyard sea.
The Sun is a star

God’s teeth scrape skin
off her black butter back.
His tears flush bogs (blush bogs)
and rain.

I am half as big as the universe
and half as small

Sunset chasing, picturing;
east Atlantic vanishing.
God horizon, fairyland,
muddy river, fallen man.

A stone in my hand:
This is all that is made
