77. Drown Everything

 

I have learnt you can drown yourself

in many ways.

 

The first,

and most obvious,

is beneath the echoing waves of water but I suppose that my lungs

aren't quite ready to be filled with

turquoise.

 

You can drown yourself in music and let the notes

swallow your ears and float

amongst the contents of your stomach but I suppose that my stomach

is too like the sea to have more items.

 

You can drown yourself in light and have the warmth

bathe you

but I suppose that my body

prefers the consuming darkness.

 

You can drown yourself in words but right now I will

drown myself

in

my

bed sheets with slumber swaddling me whole.
