The whales have tracked me down.
Behind the screen,
behind a glass in a fresh-water lake
I see them looming large in a herd of
three maybe four.
I see them but they don't see me,
I stay in that invisible bubble within the pond, dark green and crossed by alga
One whale after the other dives into the deep
their natural smile as huge as themselves
They are quick, permitting me a short gaze,
too late to show them to another human being.
They disappear into the deep.
The whales have tracked me down.
