The land at the bottom of the sea.

Sometimes an extraordinary couple of lines of poetry crop up unexpectedly. You wonder how so few words can be so combined to such effect. In Derbyshire and Bermage’s ‘Sea’, a 60s sound experiment featuring samples from people narrating their nightmares, is this couplet:

I always die on the land,
The land at the bottom of the sea.
