Erase Me

A Poem by Courtney M Watson

I smile as the sea takes me in my tangled glory.


I want to be free, like the ocean.

Erase all the salt,

be covered in milk.


Pure white, like oppression.


There is a spot,

it's land.

Yet all I see

is water.

Dense as a sand storm

pulling me  to the bottom;



into all of its pity.


Letting go

the last breath.

A bubble of air.

I smile

as the sea takes me

in my tangled glory.

& I give it myself.


Thanking me;

my body goes
