i dreamt i was at seaside
as the sun was sinking low
spinning soft on the horizon
like it had nowhere to go
i slipped into the water
heading off to see that sun
i lost all sense of gravity
impossible to run
i knew my life was over
but i felt no sense of dread
it was if a turquoise blanket
had been wrapped around my head
a trail of bubbles, northward
as my body traveled south
perhaps they would recover
a small starfish in my mouth
my hair curled up like question marks
as if to wonder why
for could there ever be
a way more beautiful to die ?
i heard a playful trickle
like a lovely mermaid's song
but it turned into a roaring
that sang out that all was wrong
then my body shifted quickly
and i rose up from the deep
i'd been snoozing in the bathtub
what a crazy place to sleep
