Yesterday I Swallowed the Ocean WholeA Poem by Hayley
Yesterday I swallowed the ocean whole,
As if I could claim it as my own,
And suffered quite a long night
With the salt echoing in my ears.
I may have gotten sea-sick,
But it didn’t matter
Because I was already sick
And had been standing open-mouthed on the shores for years
With the longing to drown.
