Verse: Ocean

If the ocean
does not remember me
I will not be surprised

it has been
so long
since I
last encountered
its tremulous

but I never
asked to be
a river

I was never
so certain
so direct

Look how
my mouth
and dissolute
is swollen
with senseless
with indigent rain
and yearning

but if I
were to
approach you
If I should
advance, unmasked
I know you
would only
swallow me
without hesitation
without regret
