You Are Here

Concentrate on
your position

or the undertow
will pull you in

that’s what it does
the weigh of its how

and there is no
escape, or glance

the sun stands still
resolute, solution

not unimaginary
but separate

leaving existence
to detritus, the muck

that pulled you out
of the ocean, friend.
