Lifeguard Division

Chase the sun. Its warmth can
Atrophy til the body grows cold;
Stiff like the memory of all that
Never happened. Eat sand.
Drink the salty air to replenish
Tears from a world that seems
Never to care but in reality
It is overwhelmed with heartache
And secrets. The trick is to
Feel everything even when it’s
Unpleasant. The sun pairs perfectly
With stillness and that’s when all the
Feelings form an amalgamation;
Ossify into structures that no longer
Slip through fingertips like holding
waves. Make space to become your own
Gravitational source of light.
