Beholding

Eschrichtius robustus

black and white underwater shot of humpback whales

Grey whale sounds in the bell

of its gaze a wide doorway

to ancient lines of unknowns

too abundant to hold and

immune to abstraction.

Infinity accommodates

the witness, its abstraction

a handle to grip. This is

something

else.

I keep watch and listen, mostly in dark places.
