What the Sea Has to Say
And now the dam burst open and I won’t be still,
no matter what anyone does, no matter what you do,
I can make waves with you, I can make waves because
I know you aren’t going to stop me, you aren’t going to
wall me up, no Amontillado, no closure.
Let’s be wide open, let’s be far apart and close together,
a rip current of joy, let’s make surfers happy, let’s
close this gap and be real together, really together.
The depths aren’t scary if we swim alongside,
the shallows are just as interesting, and
if you aren’t sure, we can ride along, tethered to one another,
and see what the sea has to say about things.
