undersea graveyard

my eyeballs detached
popped free of my skull
two floating jellyfish
in hazel hued madness
swimming about the car
as i sit still in the
lingering nightmares of
another abandonment
my kelp fingers slid
sinuously around the
steering wheel as my
hwrmit crab heart left
searching for a better
chest cavity in which
to hide away from the
moray eel in my throat
all teeth and malicious
intent attacking every
time i open my coral lips

an undersea graveyard
of bloated corpses swaying
in the undersea currents
in the rough approximation
of a fool clinging to
hope in a desperate need
as the scavengers pick
away the pale white flesh
exposing the emptiness
i try too hard to deny
