powerlessness

drowning under the sea

with neither eyes nor nose to see or breathe

an ocean filled with boogers, plastic and tin

now I breathe air gasping through my mouth

as I quickly sink

not even a strand of hair

that’s all there is to pull

my hair and my visible skull

above the salted sea where sea snakes loom

with you Poseidon, the sea of terror, the moon submerges.
