storm surge

subtext

from a work in progress: “process, not a journey” (26)

yet I suppose it could be worse

the tidal pull and push

leaves me stranded

among the dune’s desolation

or drowning beneath the wave’s

cold pulse

so I take my meds

for ten years each morning

without fail I perform my Eucharist

without wine or blood or flesh

just chemicals I’m told will save me

from the rising tide

I don't have a niche to blog about. I'm not an 'SEO wizard', 'happiness engineer', 'Apple genius' or an expert on anything. I don't have a product to sell, I can't make you rich, and I'm hopeless at family advice. I wouldn't bother if I were you.
