Whale song.

low, sonorous sound,
thrumming marine thunder,
undulating through seawater

humpback whale song
in complex phrases,
elaborate themes,
for days

thousands of miles
the moans travel,
low-frequency waves
of unremitting desire

summoning love
from the ends of the earth

the ocean is not large enough
to contain this urgency,
this pelagic rapture.
