"Shore, I" [X-Posted Like Whoa... sorry for that]

[pre-poem notes:
this is probably crappy, but I had to choose something...
it's not fully formatted in the way I'd artistically like, but such is the internet]

“Shore, I”

I stood
center of Copernicus
(newtonian motion)
dried/parched
dead/dying
(carrion)
horticulture
orbiting
me
(center of universe)
the wave
rolled toward me
sound: “bristle”
crests of gold and red and others
deep blue sea is black top-deep water
H
Two
Oh
Oh Oh!
Ho Ho Ho
Have a Happy Holiday
while I'm stuck
back here
in October
tree = dead
dead = me
static dynamic
piles
(of leaves)
like papyrus
(sun God – Ra sets
behind the clouds & trees)

Fortune
5
Zer0
Zer0
I bet there's
more leaves
(than that)
in that wave
here
crashing towards me
I am shore
rain is sky
sidewalk is horizon
road is water
sky is nothing
I am -
I am shore
shoreline
Pacific Atlantic
outcropping;
Jetty:
me
leaf-wave hits me
undertow
whoops (sneakerwave)
drug me in
I drown
in colors -
in autumn colors:
I drown...

[PAUSE]
I am -
Shore.
