saltwater (20160628)

begin in water
a stinking slime
of protein chains
so many links
of uncut summer fat sausages

emerge from the last life
dripping wet and bloody
emerge into the next life
pave the way
dripping
wet
bloody

our veins, rivers
leading to the ocean
of the heart

the salty water of
our throbbing veins
our throbbing heart

one ocean with many names
one heart in so many chests
we float
we drown
we float again

  1. A real theme of death, reincarnation, apocalypse, love and meatloaf emerging. I like it – a lot!
