the atlantic was born today and i'll tell you how: the clouds above opened up and let it out.
i was standing on the surface of a perforated sphere when the water filled every hole. and thousands upon thousands made an ocean, making islands where no island should go.
those people were overjoyed; they took to their boats. i thought it less like a lake and more like a moat. the rhythm of my footsteps crossing flood lands to your door have been silenced forever more. the distance is quite simply much too far for me to row; it seems farther than ever before..
