At Sea

At Sea 1080 810 Lucía Orellana-Damacela

The boat trembles
as if it has seen an old vessel ghost,

refracts the moonlight shredded skies
pour over hungry crests;

wide brushstrokes of mist
with pointillist stints;

composite picture
of salty froth and slated horizons,

bones’ chill, eye fatigue,
wind’s zoomorphic sounds.

Shadows fill all the spaces you can see
with what propels you forward.
