Rendering Dream Upon Waking #1

Head-butting breakers -

I couldn't enter the sea -

flung back on my back -

swallowed in sandfleas -

moon-haloed grin of David

drooling beach with ashes -

to ashes and gull grease -

white tendril tide yanks

left shoe loose and screaming -

tows it to foam - scrambling crabwise

- sand in my pants drags

me down down and my mouth fills

with urine - cigarette butts


and cold spent shell.

Thank you Jason and Eiren. Yes! Eiren, you caught it. I always see Bowie's face when I look at the full moon.

I wonder if I heard that right.
Strung out on Heaven's high, feeling that all time low.

"Cigarette butts, thrashers and cold spent shell." Great line and would make a great song title. Really like this Devon.
