The Beach

I couldn’t write
because I couldn’t drink.
So I went to the beach
to watch the ocean demonstrate
how little of a fuck it gave
for everything but the tide.

I brought a book of poems
by a writer who suffered similar problems.
The middle of the book
was a mess of ripped out pages,
so I watched the waves
and wondered if all the answers
were missing.
