“Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.”
― Charles Bukowski

from branches of dreams

that floated to my eyes

of a skyless sleep

i am still here holding

to breaking limbs

as i see many sailors

back from their voyages

wounded

crawling out of waves

so silent now

once they ate all that

floated

i have been here before

so many times

i know how the sea plays.
