Transcript of My Oceangasm: A seaside seduction

PEAK EXPERIENCES Odecean What was it that tossed our bodies
and numbed them so?
And who called us into this predicament?
And how to squeeze into words-
those dry little dust bunnies-
The cruel sloping skin,
and my full heart's devotion?

What is it that I love?

The things we have lost,
That lie cold in the muck
preserved by salt and coral.

The passion of the wave-
Having traveled countless yearning miles
she rears back at the land's obscenity,
then throws herself, gasping,
at its feet...
or is that me, moaning in the surf?

Why this blue heart siphon,
or this one
smoothing oblivion's way...
stroking my hair,
suppling my body
sucking me
