Anti-ode to the ocean

Big bowl of mouthwash
rotund salt lick lake
powerful effervescent foreverness

flat-ass cathedral making us all feel
puny and small.
You’re nothing but the sky

knocked down and filled up
and so you’re mad about that.
The only stars left for you

cling to tide pools or
reflect in your soft spots.
Churn on, big, sloppy,

relegated to down here
with the rest of us
stylin’ sinners.

– Heidi Shuler
