Sailing with the Stream

tears again happiness belongs to others alone sitting at the end of this long, rock jetty will a prince rise out of the sea carry me beneath the waves to Davy Jones' locker another myth like this life I lead filled with frogs high jumpers with web feet clinging to me ensuring no human contact frog princes are fables just slimy green reptiles gripping like seaweed on the rocks hah, frogs’ legs taste like chicken hail to me, the chicken of the sea alone happiness belongs to others tears again
Written for Debbie Guzzie's Stream of Consciousness contest April 27, 2011
