A Write To the End

A Big Wave Poem,
 —it breaks off the page

And swells in your memory,
  now hollow with rage

Its blank pages churning,
  new sounds fill the air

Deep ink you are coursing,
  as breathless you dare

Its words a tsunami,
  they tumble and maul


Crushing all but the fearless,
  watching consonants fall


Tightly closed up inside,
  you compress for the light


And hope at the end,
  you are saved in the fight


When giant verse calls,
  hope and fear you befriend


Your line now committed,
  —a write to the end

(Villanova Pennsylvania: July, 2017)
