how can you not see it?

it falls out of my mouth


punctures the ground


i drown.


how can you not know?

as i scream


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


captures me


how can you not see?

i am


– you’re the one who left, dad.
