Just A Bit South Of Nowhere


Just South Of Nowhere!


I stand on an empty
strand of sand
a lesser man,
my rib cage holds my soul
in it's overexposed
bars of bone,
I'm down to two coconuts
and hitting fish with rocks
I hate sushi and I'm lonely,
I'm stuck on a tiny atoll
and what a toll
it is taking from me,
I could use this glass bottle
to slit my wrists, and bleed
out into the ocean
thereby escaping in some manner,
but I can still see
her pale blue eyes
and her sweet smile,
and how saddened they would be
when my drained remains were found.
so I am sending out this message
on the back of the ticket
I had in my pocket,
using the pen
I signed my bar tab with,
from the cruise ship
I fell off of,
in a most inebriated state.
They promised me that I
would travel the world
and see exotic places,
but my world has shrunk
to a postage stamp
and this could be my last letter,
I used a plug of coconut
to seal it tight
tomorrow's breakfast
so if you find it
please hurry my rescue
and allow me to kiss again
that fair haired lass
who awaits me back home.
