The night of the puffer fish

she is too sane to go for crazy
I shut up and listen
what does that say to me?

Bristly 'aumakua
forever searching for food
what is your message for me?

You stay out of each other's way
my throat gets scratchy
is it only the vog?

Looking at the dark water
knowing the murky darkness has the answer
to what question?

To quieting the mind
allowing my life to flow
nowhere in particular

to the sea?
For tonight
That's enough
