It’ll Do


The camera comes in closer
to the lip of the dish
and calls attention
to the antenna

then dips down to show
the full depth
as the music swells
especially the low strings

we viewers are filled up
down to our toes

as if the dish were an ocean
we were seeing clear to the bottom of

glistening with fish
–the sparkling percussion tells us so–

we stare down but are somehow staring up, too
into more ocean
than we could ever imagine swimming in.

It’ll do.
