Open Wide


Waves upon waves, upon decks upon decks,

Seen with specs, though wet, clearly wet;

The body, it roars, useless tools, bloody oars,

Cascading liquid, wasted heeds, wordless heeds;

A lost captain, now swimming with plankton,

A fight for life, with bigger life, a soaking life;

The water, it gloats, no protection, no boats,

The water, it sees, a sacrifice, it needs;

Hungry and vicious, it lingers, no contrition,

Clinging is fruitless, barren hope, no denouement;

Visions of yore, waving by windows, outside the door,

Motionless, breathless, swept away to the shore.
