Clean-Up Set

To be completely at the mercy of the sea.
Caught inside. The curtain falls.

Tossed,
Turned,
Spun,
Churned,
Dragged,
Socked,
Tugged,
Rocked,
Pushed,
Pulled,
Threatened,
Rolled.

And released.

Gasping for air. For those few seconds (which stretched into eternity), there was no work, no words, no love, no hate, no guilt, no art, no anger. Only the moment mattered. And it was the least beautiful part of the sport that took you there, making you small.

Then you emerged,
Completely cleaned up.

    Beautiful. The sea takes complete control- your only choice is to let it happen.

    Great art, but could do w/out the poetry.
