on the beach

so we are all dying

on some level
perhaps
we all know it
cell by cell
our bodies decay
breakdown
slowdown
bit by bit
all
of us

the lake with gullssome
halted in their tracks

but we’re all dying

waves on a lakeas the outer layer
sheds
skin
day by day

yet,
in those waves of oxygen
we share
we love
again
