...in the hurricane and the dance
in the liberty of the trance
in this serration
and that imagination
all mean less than the remembrance of fire.

Finely Serrated Leaves
and Doubly Serrated Leaves
and Broadly Serrated Leaves
With a Long-Legged Fly
Broadly Serrated Virginia Creeper
From their edges, there stream into the
smooth channel sharp blue serrations
or ripples of various lengths...
- Journal entry by Henry David Thoreau, July 24, 1853
while at Fair Haven near Walden Pond
Seen now through rain
the mountains fade,
the city fades
of the skyline
dissolve like ink
on gray paper.

the salty sailor, the deck he swabbed,
until at last he had finished the job,
he went for a moonlit swim toward the sandy beach,
he swam stroke o'r stroke but the beach he would not reach,
for along came a large, rather ravenous shark,
whose habits brought it to the shallows well after dark,
with swift -toothed serration and no hesitation,
the shark gave the sailor complete evisceration,
leaving him only with a brief warm sensation.
End of story. No more narration.
