It’s Not About the Ocean

IMG_1259.JPG

I’m not going to
write a poem
about the ocean
about the sand
and the waves
and the shells
(always the shells)

It’s been written before.
It’s been said before.

But that it
makes you so small
like violence
makes you so small
like love
makes you so small
like death
and starting over
and stopping
before you began
makes you so small.

This poem
isn’t about the ocean.
