inertia

We’ve been in this boat
long enough
Each movement rocking the other
Sometimes to sleep
Too often into nausea
So we each try not to move anymore
Out of consideration
for the other
We’ve learned to turn the keel perpendicular to the waves
So we rise and fall
Giving us the sense of movement
While putting off
coming to that sunlit
barren shore
