broken and open,
your fist a brick tipped into the ocean.
Sure, a splash;
but on who's radar?
Your glowing impenetrability
your emboldened color
can't help you swim
or brag about your dent,
gone as soon as impact
as gone as a breath on a cold day.
The ripples subside-
a failed exam on a bed of murder,
blood engulfing the damning letter.
A bold move.
Very brave, very macho, very patriotic.
Soon to sink to the depths
save the Atlantis allusions
and the detrimental environmental impact.
Sand in the abyss shrugged off by some phosphorescent monstrosity.
