Surrendering to Twilight

Suspended somewhere 
mesopelagic, 
aware of the catsharks and dragonfishes, 
the coelacanths and firefly squid, 
I gaze down to the abyss 
and feel myself sinking. 

Contemplating the desire to 
develop scale and fin-- 
to dive deeper, 
I'm turned and twisted 
as whalesong bends my bones 
into tuning forks, 
the reverberation 
forcing me to face the light-- 
encouraging me to surface yet again.
