There are many islands in my ocean, listing and drifting near the edge of oblivion.

Islands of white paper

implore my words

to come ashore.

Cays and keys,

thinly populated,

reefs and shoals

for settlement of phrases.

One nears an edge;

it has drifted away.

It began

with the promise

of lucid morning,

now fallen.

Further it drifts

in resistive lull,

shorelines scarred

and settlement still.

I have seen

islands fall

one by one.
