One Insular Tahiti

The subtle sea, azure glass without light,

hides the dark, cannibalizing creatures preying eternally

upon each other – and the green earth,

also a battleground, but for some islands,

insular, with a soul of pure light.


Inspired by a passage in Melville’s Moby-Dick: “so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti”
