Murmuring O Love! O Love!

Gazing up into
The darkness I saw myself,
A creature driven
By desire and poverty,

Other creatures above me,
Other creatures underneath,
Driven by desires the same,
As helplessly as me,

Fish flashing in schools,
Penguins shuffling iced circles,
Starlings in murmuration,

Mangan’s sister’s Araby.
Loneliness would be better
If not for the company.
