salt and sun

fighting
the natural
buoyancy of
an ocean
of unshed tears
anchored
to acres of
bleached
heartcoral
a once
bountiful
habitat
now an empty
ritual of
habitual
disingenuousness
sunburnt
with patches
of saline
insignificance
a depressionary
lesson on
wasted wishes
overly saturated
yet dehydrated
yearning to
drown
yet incapable
of sinking
beneath the
salty waves
lurking in
hazel dissent
