Six Days at the Bottom of the Sea.

4 am
and I’m
wide awake
feeling like
I just spent
six days
at the bottom of the sea

or six years
or
like I’ve
always been there

tumbling with the current
around and around
and back and
forth

Erosion gets to
most things
and just as most things
it got to me,
too

6 am now
and the sun starts to peek
through the blinds
washed ashore
as Dylan plays in the distance
this rabbit is frightened by
the lack of AC
this one is frightened by
the wolves
this wolf is frightened of
scaring the
rabbits away
and this hawk
dreams of
eating them
all.
