Beneath The Water Black

Beneath The Water Black” is a track added by rfcl in the Hermetic Library audio pool.


At midnight
these unknowable creatures wander
far and wide
through the world
through the water black.

The activities
of these giants are hidden.
They bring with them baskets
filled with the dust of stars.
They remain at large
through birth and death
through light and shadow.
They ignite beneath their claws
Ragged and mountainous,
these officers and directors
of silent promises
they share the world
they share the water black.

Singing from the windows
we call to them
and they take the opportunity
to deny
entering into a solemn contract
as they open the doors,
they divert attention
away from the dreams
deep beneath our
cemented surface,
beneath the world
beneath the water black.
