Looking down from an aeroplane
I see the Ancient Mariner's sea,
a sea of fear, and desire
for the Albatross.



The sun came up upon the left,
Out of the sea came he!
And he shone bright, and on the right
Went down into the sea.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Rime of the Ancient Mariner






Flying around the Earth I drew,
reading lines from the Ancient Mariner.

I felt my place in the icy space
that Coleridge imagined.
