The Breakthrough

IMG_0056

When you look through the choppy water
you wonder if those dark rocks
are really black-eyed sharks
And the grassy seaweed
is really phosphorus eels.
By the way
the jellyfish are really jellyfish
…and maybe the stinging kind.

It doesn’t matter though.

Your wooden boat
is splintering against the reef.
Either way,
you’re going to get wet
…and no amount of Dramamine will help.
