Not now shall the willing keel slip down to the sea,
Not now shall the home-desiring bark come home;
The rocking surge is a dream, and the flying foam,
And the sails that over the windy billows roam–
A dream! for the sea is gone, and the wind has died:
It is dead low tide.
-Edith Matilda Thomas
Dead Low Tide is a darker evolution of Fluke as its aqueous characters find themselves caught within a net. Their consequent journey out of it is perhaps is what brings them together. Where they go next is a mystery.
