First draft, i.e., not yet sure whether it's self-indulgent crap or has any good bits. Probably helps (but it shouldn't) to listen to Kate Bush's "Under Ice" first. (There's a Farscape version. :-) )


And on top of the ice and under the ice
is her face and the face of her looking at her
and above and below and the dark and the cold
reaching for light and the cold

And the air and the light and the water so dark
through the cracks through the hole of the whole
of what is and what isn't is rising is falling
sinks down in the cold in the water

And out of the water is gasping is breathing
the needles the cold the ice in the air
and her face and the face of her looking below
still caught in the ice in the cold.
