Ocean Creature

I dare to write a poem here

Where there is no ocean.

I dare to swim here

where there is no depth to speak of.

I dare to float on my back

In an office building

With no sky above to shelter me,

Only dying fluorescent lights

Cheap foam core tiles.

I dare to dart through a sea of tiny silver fish

Where there are only fatigued mobs,

Anemic and robbed of contentment

Hearing only my own underwater breath,

My own water muffled movements,

My heartbeat drowned in the sounds of others.
