A Poem by Bradley Morewood

a moment of clarity

the water rose above the piano
and over the shelved Hummels
which began to swim with the coral fishes

I lay on the couch
my arms lolling about like tentacles
my eyes the size of a grouper’s

the blue and yellow streaks of sunlight
painted shimmering sequences on the carpet

we all just accepted the sea
since its rise had been foretold many times

we enjoyed the volumes of clear water
the problems of our past now washed away

the foundation of the house
became a rectangle at the end of a camera
swishing by on a sparkling robot
