Ebb and Tide

And then that thought strikes you
It stings you
With a scorpion’s sting
Sudden, sharp, complete

And sweat stains the spine
Trickles down
Streaming through the crack
Until it gets
To the foot of the hill

Where it forms a pond
In which you swim
Sometimes drowning
Sometimes surfacing
And resurfacing

Draw films of life
For you to choose from

And when these waters have done their time
The scene that stands before your eyes
Stays its course until the end

Of the next time
