(A little poem called):


The beached shells
Of other selves
But you filled their mouths with sand.

Determined, then,
You drowned the cries
Thrashing silver fins
Which cut your hands.

And when your feet had crushed
The pleas
That bubbled in their throats
You bound the dead together
And made of them a boat.
