Words Like Waves

Words like waves always on the mind breaking
And boiling up sand from the bottom where
The ugly fish forever skulk near his thoughts
Of becoming that famous undiscovered guy who
Once lived near these sands and waters where
He wore socks with sandals as a kid and
Was told repeatedly he couldn’t write worth a
Shipped out to the military at eighteen from
Love of a girl who never asked him to do it only
To find himself in a different riptide while

Words like waves always on the mind breaking
Remind him that the last time he swam out this far
He barely made it back
