AIR

They can survive underwater you know

for many days

many years

as long as they need to.

Walking along the ocean floor

clawing at dead whales

decaying with sunken ships and

unlucky divers.

but you and i

we need air.

we cannot walk in the waste

breathe that salt

you and i cannot

fend for ourselves amongst the sharks

the sharpened pirate planks

you and i bleed

from the tips of our toes

the backs of our knees

in-between our shoulder blades

you and i bleed

and we

suffocate.

We bleed

and we


suffocate.
