a lifetime of deadly sleep

reduces you to this shoreline

where you sit up on the sands

of dull-sunned gray-metal morning at seaside

awakening at last and too late for this skin

but always the hope the carry-over will be less

than expected should I lug it forward to make amends

of this dawning of lethal consciousness
