Hidden Properties of Inertia

The Hidden Properties of Inertia

We rock side to side in a swell.

Belowdecks, our collected objects are strangely immobile:

ceramic bowls

the tea kettle,

drawing paper,

bits of cactus driftwood and fragments of coral and

hollowed out shells.

They waver and stream like seaweed in current,

fixed and adrift, at once.
