we said that we knew the deep from the shallow

and we knew the currents of the sea

but yet we still find ourselves drifting in the aftermath of a hurricane

clinging to our shared piece of driftwood

and wondering which will get us first

thirst (for good poetry and people)

or sharks (boys who like girls with big smiles and watery laughs)
