Two 2

The fathoms deep are shown to us
in black and white, sparkling
with the grain and scratch of age. The man mouths
his breathing apparatus
and descends through an inconceivably
brief tear in the ocean which swallows
itself back and sends the drops
of water jumping from the surface
like a thousand popped off buttons.
He might be undressing the sea,
forcing himself headlong beneath it.
