Ray Boone

They pointed out the ways he’s parted the ocean for me
But left out the how he let the waves crash on when no one else was around
Since then I’ve been stuck under water and I’ve been choking on kelp everyday
I have a jellyfish in one lung and squid ink in the other
But the seaweed around my neck and the bites on my legs
Somehow are less painful than knowing that he’s praised for my “rescue”
