my ministry rescues lost causes
the sunken ones tethered
to dark benthic shrines
far below sea skin surfaces
my job to open those black
drowning tides push the sun
down and down to the depths
burn the light of the possible
into your brain hope is ugly
because it bathes truth in a
waterless talcum of maybe
not handsome like certainty
honest grotesquery livid with
ways to revive sense of worth
restore purpose and path to
the purpling despondence rise up
from the bottoms and walk
with me save yourself taste
what I say smell the promise
that it can be better than this
warm and dry in the slimeless
fresh breeze of the future
