it's like being on a boat in the middle of the ocean
where weird things are living way under the surface

show me the flying fish slicing through daylight,
back into darkness

at night you dive under and swim through the shadows
and the strange phosphorescence makes movies in your mind

when you slap into waking, what visions have followed you?
can you still see them? whose visions are they?

show me the flying fish flashing from darkness
back into daylight

a stick man who rattles his arms by the bedside
a panther who runs by the side of the road
a room that's a pond, and a friend and you fishing
for trout that hang out underneath your old dresser

show me the flying fish out of the darkness
lit by the lamplight

you drive an old coastline, huge whales in the water
they're black as the sound of Tibetan monks chanting
you want to dive deep with them
