A Shipwrecked must occur

That shipwreck will  provoke
consequently the breaking of the old vessels.

Those vessels alike those of the old galleons
would contain coins that we use daily
but that are already moldy, worn
and therefore no longer valid. 

The vessels that contain 
rotten coins in the form of:
debates,  tangent stories, 
contradictions, and unresolved disputes
should be broken.

And from the remains of the old vessels
from the depths of your self,
the quietness,
the abandonment. 
the stillness, 
and a new inner peace
will emerge to the surface
in the form of sparkling bubbles.

Shipwreck, the praise of the day's last drink... or both?
