When You Ran Out of Air

Sky let you fall.
Ocean swallowed you.

Ocean took you in.
Sky set you free.

Sky let you.
Ocean swallowed.

  2. The way you worked these words, worked so well, Rose. You are almost to the end of the month!

    Sky, you could’ve held us
    your air was heavy
    enough that day.

    Ocean, you were so full
    you didn’t need
    another thing.

    Land, you gave us hard choices
    when we wanted
    a soft place.

    We were so
    let down.
