vanquishing sea salt

as i lay within the sea salt waves

every atom of myself and it


i remember once

they looked my age

at seventeen

in feet.

to what i defined

the dark blue habitation to creatures with teeth.

but now i submerge myself underneath

the rhythm of the crash

that has begun to soothe me.

i become the bridge

to the chorus

it’s creating

building up to the pull back

and crash.

losing myself,

creating a melody.

allowing myself

to sink between the ins and the outs

but never sinking into the timidity

balancing the salt in my body

with the salt in its own

accepting its intensity,


it’s presence.

granting it the push and the pulls

and from the fear

i composed a home.
