high tide

my tides

they have risen

way past the water line

above the banks

beyond the basin’s brink

and are ready to breach

my thoughts

they have boiled

way past the kettle’s brim

and are ready to leach

my lungs

they have swelled

way over the ocean’s edges

beyond the tanks

above the beach

and are ready for speech
