cascades

how can you not see it?

it falls out of my mouth

cascades

punctures the ground

overwhelms,

i drown.

 

how can you not know?

as i scream

wail,

hit the ground with my fists,

internally feeding the frenzy, the riotous waves of pain,

crashing and crushing and suspending me in time.

 

the ocean pulls me

in

captures me

(capsize)

how can you not see?

i am

drowning.

– you’re the one who left, dad.
