6-3 You are Gods

You are Gods


You are gods, children of the Most High, all of you;

nevertheless, you shall die like mortals, and fall like any prince.

—Ps. 82:6-7


A Leviathan wave swells behind

his ten-meter Catalac catamaran,

lifting him on curling froth,

jutting him on the wave’s crown,

five stories above the trough abyss.


He plummets like a sinker from a pier

as a spinnaker shrouds overhead


and covers him in ocean roar.
