it is no longer possible to live
on an iceberg
your own cool island
where it was always possible to try
and find a snug hollow

beautiful and empty
with a slightly misty horizon
better than
panoramas of open sea –
too overwhelming

the issues of plumbing
changes of clothing
a balanced diet
blacken a brief paradise
as the ice diminishes

your autonomy
lessens by the day
in a journey south
where chance of polar bear
is idle fear
though expanse of ocean so much greater
