Do you too feel
like the ocean welling up
and spilling out?
Do you feel like the coast,
more each wave
recoiling. until there is nothing left
And when our people lay,
with the trees, with the world
Will it then, be enough?
do you see storm clouds in the distance
and close the blinds?
while the streets flood outside
With another river,
another reassurance that it’s fine
