What Seas Did You Sail?

Seas full of icebergs
 in the middle of the world

 frozen spikes of water
 are concrete and glass
 that show the passage of light

 a shoulder, a leg, a skull,
 that looks like a truck
 that looks like a street
 strides over and out
 of reflection.

WHAT SKIES DID YOU FEATHER?

 Beware windows keep faces
 behind two panes

 eyes, cheeks, teeth captured
 when you glance through
 a wrong glass at the outside.

Interesting but the end of the third stanza – the unattached strides – lost me a bit. Nicely disjointed and surreal. Mitch

Nowt wrong with that in anarchically measured amounts!

Question: How many surrealists does it take to change a lightbulb?
Answer: A fish!
