our history has been caught for a moment
and maybe a lifetime
in the perils of the sea
it has been left
for the sharks
to devour it
all that we contain
in one blood stained battle
of thrashing teeth and

[one_half_last]and now, looking back
there are only bits and pieces
of bleeding memories
trailing along, waiting
to be dissolved by the tide
