Let Me Bother You
I’ll walk down to the beach,
see you standing there,
and tug on that beard.
I’ll knock you down,
roll around with you through the waves
and land on top.
You’ll have the sand between your hairs,
our bodies wet,
while watching the sand melt away beneath us.
It’ll melt the distance between us,
it’ll melt away the silence held within,
while we watch the waves in unison
daydreaming for hours
because we know the waves will never stop.
And maybe, just maybe, we hope to be like those waves:
with ceaseless power,
to just be
and flowing carelessly.
