sluiced by motion...





–the sea,
five miles off
Hatteras Inlet,
Outer Banks, June 07





But that star-glistered salver of infinity,
The circle, blind crucible of endless space,
Is sluiced by motion,—subjugated never.

         – from Hart Crane, “Cape Hatteras,” The Bridge

It's good to be back, Collin - though I hate every time I leave the Outer Banks.
