    dotsoratory of the clam in sunshinedots

    oratory of the clam
    in sunshine:

    dull breakers,
    quell your sparkling quarks
    from me
    for i am an island
    inside the island
    of my under-pearl.

    i've gnashed histories
    pubescent flesh for you
    and your sun
    so forceful
    with my lover's moon.

    dull breakers,
    challenge not
    the early morning bread
    of meat.
    slosh wayward
    & flail hope like rivers mud.

    my teeth
    are yet evolving
    so fear me not.
    & the faithless wonderings
    of ill tides fall upon me.
    i am skin.

    night feeds me
    while I sleep.
    i'm inside you here
    where mother pushes
    like a clock.
    & while she tic tic tics
    the ocean falls.

    i'm breathless
    here in the sunshine
    where i can not breathe...

      Wow man I don't really know what to say about this one! It makes me feel like I fell asleep on the beach & had a far-away dream. I was a little confused at some points, like I didn't really understand what you meant by 'bread of meat' but the imagery was sufficient to convey that dreamy, nostalgic feeling. Plus I'm a big fan of the ocean & sea life (as topics). Good stuff!
