shipwrecks

we are all
shipwrecks
some of us
have yet
to find the reef
while some of us
have already sunk

we carry
the unmarked graves
in our
waterlogged bones
moss swaying
in the cold
currents of the past

telltale signs
of emergency repairs
half finished
as the rot
returns all to sediment
where all the best
sentiments eventually return
