Wet Dreams #9


As I drowned my face in the sink to rinse away the soot,
the oddly real flashbacks resurfaced, hitting hard like a
wave against the desolate shore. Somehow, even though there
is no proof of it ever occuring, it is always the same--
I'm drowning swiftly into the fathomless ocean...in a navy
suit. Past life, perhaps? I struggled for breath, pleading
w/Neptune and finally emerged from the scared depths;
realistically, recovering my face from the sink. As I do
so, I catch a glimpse of my face in the mirror, awkward and
raw as ever. It wasn't the same face of my youth; that face
that I'd often see in the reflections of the waves as I'd
stare down from my 7 footer in sheer boredom while waiting
for the ninth one to hump. Naw, it wasn't that overly
sunburnt face of childhood's hour who came alive w/the mere
mention of firing off her first rifle. It was the face of a
person coming of age and eager to burn, burn, burn....

they'll do. One of these days these boots are gonna walk
all over YOU"-- Nancy Sinatra
