RIPTIDE

Do not swim into one
unless you want to be part of the ocean
which I understand we all are anyway

Why fight it? If you stay on land 
you will still be part of the ocean
although you will be living in the part

of the world that is not the ocean
until shops and buildings and schools
and warehouses die and turn to dust

and then water and then glue
and become more human and then too
are part of the ocean and so on Lord 

knows, though, we cannot wait so long.
The ocean is too greedy and impatient 
for that. Remember:

you are the ocean, you have all those terrible possibles
of all thoughts, and you are everything and you are wet.
