There's a strange new boat in the harbor, manned by five strange men. Shark sightings by the blackhouse tower. Play the tape back again. There's no time for a kind not like our kind, not in this desperate land. They're singing songs but not the songs that we're used to, so don't extend your hand.
See the arc spinning, dark, of the blackhouse. Keep the time with your heart. Lose your name and your place and relations. Feel the land split apart. Shark fins circle slowly in the twilight. Mesmerizing, they spin. Every ending yields a new beginning, so let the ending begin.
If you simply pull the thread, then the fabric loses structure. On the surface of the water all it takes is primal fear. If you start to lose your head, say goodbye to law and order. On the surface of the water some are quick, and some are dead.
