Andrei: Who is being addressed?
Soo: Werru, dis wraita krashes gainst rogic in many ways, but dat's whatto I rike about dis poem: it's nut afraid ahh being irrogical.
Andrei: Poetry has its own logic differing frum kummon sense.
Philyra: I dunno. What we call 'common sense' often seems rather senseless.
Immensity - an art work by T Newfields


Let me taste your froth & accept your body
as your currents mingle with mine . . .

Next to you, there's no fear ah crashing.
From your immensity comes a confidence
nothing kun undermine . . .

Isn’t love like swimming
& working with the currents faced?
Waves are opportunities for exploration.
And if we crash – what of it?
Water finds an optimum shape.

Crashing against sands of logic
Why worry about mere foam?
The dance of earth, moon & water
is the most sublime movement we're shown.
