Salt Sea: ‘you’re heart’s a muscle and that’s all’ – clem

I am the Mare Mortuum,
silent and still,
so worn by the deep
with unwanted wisdom,
while the winds of past lives
blew just above
my unmoved waters,
the only waves churned
were those of Charon’s wake
who floated easily
to-and-fro my salty sea,
and yet, despite the silent dead,
I know the sounds of peace
better than most seas could sing.
