Poems Mostly of the Sea
by Jenne Kaivo




Overview -
"A Sea-Change

Why have you come down to the water and forgot yourself?

I could not be myself.
My thoughts went drifting through the metal sea.
I was the ocean.
I drank all that was there, sand and my angry waves that tear the shore.
How could I drink the stone coast with myself?

Do dead stars burn so you can know yourself?

The dead stars burn over the metal sea.
I could not stand my rage, or hear my eagle scream
not bounce back from the sea.

You think you crush the strong shells with yourself?

They have their sheen, all rainbow whorls like an oil-slick.
I could not stand the sheen.
I've never held a lover to myself.
My thoughts went soaring past the airy sky.
I thought I drowned the world, and turned myself to elements and stars.
I came down to the water to forget myself."

An assortment of poems written by Jenne Kaivo between the years 2003 and 2018. Structured and free-verse, villanelle and sestina, these poems explore the themes of identity and humanity, with a great interest in the natural world.
