#004: Bit by Bit

Live the waves

Let the water undulate

And cascade against your skin

With your body

Float then dip

Then dive right in

Salty water on tongues

The fizz of first love

Seaweed entangling the toes

Like adolescent dreams that

Won’t let go of the person you’ve grown into

But the fish munch on, bit by bit

And with patience, your feet flutter to freedom

(Take it in)

Your head bobbing up and down


Intuition leading you to the horizon

Where you catch his dilated pupils in prayer

They were pools of oceans

Dreaming of a sea
