Blue Spiky Sea / Holly Anderson and CBB, 2013

the windows need cleaning —

let's polish off the year —

gather up all the leaves

— one x one —

we'll wash them/burnish them —

salute the dwindled sun.

we'll sing a parting song —

we'll take a boat across the spiked

& spiny sea

before the true-frost —

before —

the whole-world turns cold.

sea shanty / iceland
