Ocean

The bottom of an ocean, like the Atlantic where Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro overlooks

Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro

Observing the grave sounds of the ocean,
following with closed eyes
The sandy trail of its breaths:
sometimes slow,
sometimes exhausted,
Sometimes intoxicated by consuming storms,

I understand that my dying (if it ever happens),
Is not a flayed barge in the distance,
A limp gull I glimpse approaching,
Nor that decayed log,
stroked,
still,
By lunar bursts of feminine eagerness.

My dying lies barren
Onto this rock.

Like a seashell,
the only memory of me
Will be a fake undertow echo,
Trapped in the burnished coils
of a shell
(inexplicably)
repudiated.
