bliss landing


is closer

than you think

seventeen minutes

this journey

towards bliss

begins with four taureans

in a black vehicle

a grey and white cat

a ferryman named pete

in a red cap

cross the water

pass the ragged islands

to a dock

with four totem poles

where sun smacks the ocean

blue mountains

in the distance
