man hides his contempt the way oceans swallow (bigoted) voyagers.
left unknown to dark seas whom light has never kissed.
so too, does wreckage fill a man’s ocean. (as his own body)
countless the days become as sun nor moon passes between them.
beasts only blackness knows roar with disgust as they tether near a man’s contempt.
abandoned to the pit sickness admires, molested by sleep.
fevered twin sisters and eternal foes are the sea with a man’s secrets.
untold myth and chalice tragedy for
never will his waters caress lightened sands warmed in sun.
