Seasickness

You can laugh when you’re
perfectly still.
The rain seemed to die.
In the light of the moon,
I felt an emptiness and
I melted into
an ocean of water,
shadowy and nightmarish.
No ground beneath my feet,
I sicken with terror.
Losing consciousness,
my body, exhausted
my voice, a hoarse whisper
I fell into it and
let the water run into me.
(I tried to drink it all.)
