Mariana Trench

‘Deepest place / on the planet’ /

Wonder is hidden
Six miles below
The Pacific’s
Endless surface.
Deepest place
On the planet,
So close
To its fiery core,
Only an ocean’s
Great weight
Keeps the molten
Heart of earth
From cracking open,
From pouring forth
All of its anguish,
Relief, ecstasy.
