gritty sand
inside my mouth
salty residue
bleached black

waves push and pull
down under
hold my breath
just a few moments longer

this will pass
this will go away
this suffering will subside
this loneliness will die

tumble under the crashing waves
the terrible sun
the horrible water
the faint taste

seaweed stuck to me
gulls flock asea
the barrel breaks upon the crest
the wood splinters into my chest

the breeze makes it so cool
the breeze makes me so cold
with time i wash up
only to wake up alone

in my time of dying
