POEM: Marooned

wracked & shattered —
crawling ashore
sputtering & coughing —
clawing the sand

i roll like the detritus lapped by waves,
but more spastically —
not with the gentle surrender of a warped deck timber —
but like a thing struggling not to be pulled back in —
though lacking the strength to press up to hands-n-knees

a coconut thuds onto sand
&
satori
