How Many Nautical Miles

nautical miles

artist Gediminas Pranckevicius

I still remember the summer noon
There were seas
in my eyes
That emptied out
drop by drop
And my heart felt
like an anchor
Hitting the ocean floor

I wish I could tell you

About the drag of the currents…
How many nautical miles…
As I waded through the storm
And crawled out of my
own salty skin.
