Even keel

Even keel
the boat never rocks.
The sea itself could be mist,
wave incapable.
Walls with shelves,
threw paperbacks and
occasional hard covers
telling tales, stories, sagas.
Wow invocation.
Humanity
put on a platter,
ingest,
sink in teeth.
Blood & strawberry jam,
food always drips to my chin,
still absolute stillness.
Even keel,
half a century
instilled a hunger,
passion
is cerebral.
Name it palsy,
the heart,
at even keel.
No orgasmic intensity,
impatient patience,
stillness,
petrified.
