Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 219 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

From the terrace, I can see the work
of your fingers: the constellation Perseus,
his sword, trailing the sea,
fixed against the sky. The masterwork
of light which lingers on the surface
of the sea transfixes me.

The nightfall has blurred the place
where your fingers bind ocean to air.
Stepping off the dock, I shiver
against the water, unmindful of my face,
hushed and pale and unaware.
And, who am I-quivering-

that you would give me heed?
A moon-jelly ribboning beneath my feet
glows faint like a ghost,
its green light tangled in the weeds.
