Walking Through The Sea

Walking Through The Sea short poem

Photo by Brad Higham

When the antagonist speaks
with oozing vileness,
the glib atrocity
is hard to grip.

The obvious monstrousness
lays unhidden
and he
walks through the hellish waters
walks through a malicious sea.

Gravitates
towards the unfathomable depth,
succumbs
to the irresistible force,
breathing the liquid air.

The gait is twisted
the walk is onerous,
yet the persistent devilish ways
highlight
like a sky full of laser beams.

What changes, is everything –
the dead fishes swims
and the live plants speak
and the graying humans go mute.

Away from the crowd She whispered her tale. To the cresting waves, To the frothy foam, To the flying seagulls, They knew her soul. They were waiting for her To wash her heart. She left the remains, She was carrying

Sea Monkeys

Sea Monkeys short poem

Everything we know, or think we know, comes from an infinitesimal speck of time and space. “Important” people, just random specks of insignificance. Nothing more than Sea Monkeys, fluttering around Sea Monkey world. Everything spoken as truth only reinforces ignorance.
