chain of islands

traveling through time
discovering the moments that might have meant
something more to those that used to be
a part of a life
and thinking
“Whoa, wait a sec here.”

we were together on the beach
holding each other up against the wind
watching waves roll out
and hoping that the bogey man wasn’t real

all the while there was something real at home
a fear encapsulating and evolving
a sense of self detaching and becoming less
preservation throwing out a single circular raft
as though the piranha haven’t already begun
to bite at styrofoam
and there’s only moments before continuity
is a chain of islands straining to remain acquainted
