Elijah: Do you feel the erotic undertones here? Jules: The bloke is in love with the ozean: that's a source of power, but also absurdity.
L'idiotie a sa beauté.
Andrei: When you approach it logically, all passion is rather silly.
Still – isn't it fun to surrender to nonsense and enjoy zhe waves?
What massive beauty & immense delight!
How staggering to realize – we're mere ciliates
in the web of life.
Diatoms: they're microscopic jewels
floating in a sea
with silica walls as inlaid treasure vaults
And then there's plankton:
the antithesis of immensity
floating in drops as silicates
deciphering the sun's speech
As amoebas float through our bodies
. . . as we spatter upon countless boulders
Hear the author read this poem.
