Black raging sea

Fierce waves

You wicked beasts
I know you cannot hurt me

Since the flood what’s left
Of me is mostly water

I know you’re water too
Just like the rest of us

My well-manicured pot plants

The rain came along with a

Tsunami wave

That dragged us all screaming

Into the heart of the ocean
