TranscriptIF ONLY EROS could invent this ocean as my element, where water moulds me as I hold motion in momentum's fold, the perfect momentary slave of every rudimentary wave, the seamless infinite caress of Being being effortless; then why I must, myself, explore at last that broken, jagged shore of anchored unfamiliar lands, only Eros understands.
