Oceans of my Head

James Dunn

Estimating the weight
of these golden shackles,
Doped to the gills
With gravity’s inertial charm,

I sit back
upon the centuries
And swim through
The oceans of my head.

Somewhere else,
light bulbs burn out.

Somewhere else,
A bell rings true

(James Dunn, Soft Launch, Bootstrap Press/Pressed Wafer, 2008)
