Surfacing

Beneath the froth of our conversation:
crisscrossing channels of sentiment,
peacocking plumes of hot air,
miles-long trenches of silence.

There are beings
who live deep
in the unspeakable,

Ghostly creatures
too flimsy of form
to surface alone.

Still, we try:
hauling them up
one word at a time.
