riptide

it comes at funny times

not haha just weird

emotion scooting along

or riding waves like

a blonde chiseled form

who makes even utter surfing failure

bailing headlong into the surf

look enviably free

so when it comes

those darkened waves

climbing

capping

crashing

i stand on a board

i don’t possess

attempt a difficult skill i’ve never learned

and i fail

waves pulverizing untrained

unhardened

unremorseful

me

sucking me out into lost
