Slow breathing tides lap over me:
Their once glorious sighs reduced to mere whispers.
I’m tipsy with the thought
Of my next location –
A destination most desired by a simple seabed dweller.
Have I made it? I splutter after
The submersion of sand and success.
I gasp as the water inhales – exposed
And cool, I ponder.
“You’ll do fine; it’s what’s inside that matters!”
With a ghastly grey exterior I disagree.
Curious brown eyed creature
Greets me with excitement –
I am raised with gentle hands and
Praised for my size –
Which of course begins an unstoppable
“They only want you for one thing!”
My mother’s words ricochet.
