Oceans

After falling in love with the sea,

we adopted it into our eyes.

And watched the tides flow,

the moon’s call pulling, and

then the sea pulled us back.

We watched the stars,

but the brine in our eyes

blurred out the light and turned it into pinpoints.

We stayed on Earth. Gravity hugged our ankles.

We stopped flying. Green no longer

crawled into our bronchial tubes.

The sea pulled our eyes.

And pulled.

And pulled.
