drown

where did the swirl
the spin
map the next deliverance?
i was only a shell
to find the bitter semblance
of myself
in true-torn wit
the sky itself keeps score
calling once the now for all
to go “where no man has gone before ”

she turned her head and blinked
but never smiled
and i spent life asleep
the dawn of never child
in up part of away
the churn so deep
to level slams down quick
hard
sure
our future not to be
what went before

don’t ever echo me
don’t ever find the key

a wall of sand and promises
preserved
it was my shame
but night was only all concealed
….they never knew my name
