Adrift in Unnavigable Oceans Poem

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem took him on a journey from ant theory buddhist insignificance musings through to the very alien world of salt science.

And there was a carrotic reward at the end of the journey for the poetic ass, as the salt alchemy symbol looks like a very relevant folding line.

So the folding middle line is a symbol in this poem, which is a first for the Folding Mirror poetic form.

Hearing the concept behind Black Sabbath’s Planet Caravan song on the BBC’s Classic Albums: Paranoid documentary probably set my trail of thought going, and I was helped through the scientific maze by ol’ Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, and his song Lithium.

Adrift in Unnavigable Oceans: Sodium Chloride

zillion genes passed
amongst my species
before I emerged
into the world
salt of the Earth
sodium

chloride
saline in the Ocean
beyond my life
after I’ve departed
humanity will continue
evolving time passes
