one day to leave her, sand up to her shoulders
waiting for the tide to drag her to the ocean to another sea’s shore.
A good place to look to the future is when you are sat at the sea
with the salt up to your ankles and a view of the end of the pier.
You may look down at your model’s feet and wish that you’d just float away,
and the weather here is overcast and the sea is the same shade of grey,
so the landscape before you looks just like the edge of the world.
And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart.
And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course.
