otterworldly (don’t let me go)

the sun is setting over churchill’s domain
tide has made way for the hush of vesper
a chorus of gnats precedes evensong’s tune
with their preternatural buzz
a falsetto convergence amid bulrush fuzz

two otters, so weary in daylight’s remains
they’re swaying far out in soft waves’ cradle
coupling paws in a blissful slumber so
they won’t drift apart and be lost to the sea
their naked souls entwine beyond a darkened quay
