Tsunami


Art by Annija Veldre

I thought it was you
Drowning me in words,
Said and unread,
Spilling over my head;
You blamed my mother
And the tide takes the dead.
The waves roll relentless,
Caring not of despair,
Crashing past joy
And agony the same.
At the end it’s all smooth,
A glassy blue plane,
As if nothing existed
And maybe we didn’t–
Why not walk into it;
Why not give in?
Sand hot and glistening
Hides bulleted bones
As well as pink stones.
And one wave grows stronger;
One ghost comes home.

    Coded Link Attempt

    • Hey. It worked! Not sure why. I use that same format every time in WordPress when attempting comment links from my smartfoo and it never works. Maybe because I used the double quote marks instead of the single quote marks to surround the link? Pretty sure that never mattered before. Oh well. Code. Always annoying.
