Looking at the Pier

Looking at the Pier
Fidgety shadows of lights
make the sea look like a Van Gogh painting.

I want to go swimming
as if I could live in one man's distillation of night.

What does 'one man's distillation of night' mean, Jack?

RE: Looking at the Pier
The "one man" is Van Gogh, and his "distillation of night" refers to the image of night in this painting, "Starry Night Over the Rhone":

As it's a painting the image doesn't move, so it's a distillation.
