Ask another question

said the humpback

as it slapped in shining skin

and rolled a fin-swell 

out of sea

which foamed in sprayed answer

to a rush-breaking breach, each a search 

for the lift of a body


said the whale

is how all questions begin

in drawing us up

to a crossing 

on a rich tide that tugs

across bubbling fathoms

and speaks as the sky

in whales rising.
