Our quest for the world
leads ten thousand leagues beneath
the surface of its seas of good feelings,
leaving us marinating,
desiring a chill to thaw the warmth.
 
We sour as hours pass, as
(pickles in a jar)
waiting for these seas to drain,
releasing and beaching us
to dry and finally die to ourselves.
