Poetry Manifesto: As the Whale sings so do I

I send you my poetry
as the Sperm Whale sends her song

Out into the wide ocean
to listen for echoes, to hope for response

Her staccato clicks can be hunting for sustenance
but they also encode messages and love songs

I write as she sings, with the flow
poems gather, are born, cleaned and sung

Poems may sustain you or tell you a truth
