Rip Tide

On the beach

Empty pill box bobbing up and down

My memories of you

One capsule left

Repeats zero

Swallow it down.

Placid ocean

Cracking sun

Jagged piers of resentment

Split a lazy yolk across the years of sky.

Gentle golden surf

Vainly sighing reassuring words

As to an inconsolable, crying child.

Wade out into the druggy orange haze:



Faith and

Into the rip tide

Out to sea

Into the deep


Waters violently roil,

Lethal danger silently lurks beneath,

Hungry to eat…

Wherever I sleep.
