you’ve always thought the sea was magnetic,
the secret place where the sky kisses the sea
has always been just beyond your reach

kinda like stars, the contemporaries of your age

before plopping you down on the wet sand where
castles are in your midst

it’s hard to keep trying to succeed when things

If I was a teacher
I’d see the world as 
History
My students and I would travel back 
To see wars and kings
On the shores of things
That didn’t seem to matter
Minutes before
And then I’d return
Because there’s always more
To study
Like the undeniable beauty of now 

If I was a pilot
I’d see the world
As a blanket of clouds
Unplowed
