The Lesson

adrift
salt on my lip
I can no longer drink
from this water
I soften my gaze,
trying to catch the next shimmer
the next ship that will come and take me home

I wonder if the line
of the horizon can bend
I wonder if the stars get drunk
from their own light
I wonder if the sun is really a
polarized nightmare

and I wonder if I
can ever die
