have you ever felt so large and so small at the same time

in the gulf there is the closing sun and as the fire tip dissolves into the far water line i drift with the small waves far from hard digits and all lovely sound suddenly thousands of tiny fish cross my path or i cross theirs some start reaching up out into the air liquid silver bursting from the wide blue green a couple hit my face i start screaming but it is a clear fight for life and i'm in their only way and j dear j laughs at this scene even as other fish bang up eyeless against him too oh we are happy in the small ungoogled places in the world we know the slow step of time touches with some gentleness ours on this day at this minor minute just as the smooth coral sky joins another bowl of night and becomes others' the next forming morning
