       8 hours at a rehab center for my friend who is addicted to meth.

    Unsteady seating, our spot littered with leaves
    And watching the sun set into skinny trees
    Like a peach that's ripened and dipped in a sink
    Of every shade of blue in a downpour of ink
    That will ripple and bubble as tides get too strong
    And stop to settle when the wind moves along
    Theyíre watchful, and stare down on our shadows
    But I walk you to the dock, at the peak of the shallows
    We swish and sway because itís communication
    And you lay in my lap in hesitation
    I falter
    You alter
    Because your position is flooding my mind
    With memories Iím truly terrified to unwind
    I flash back to November, remembering how
    She used to rest her head too, but can never now
    We ended up here, against all the odds
    And the sunlight is streaming; the juice of the gods
    Iím humming to the beat of a riverbank song
    That floats and swims and dives right along
    But the unspoken truth: this picture is all wrong
    We sit in wonder
    Staring only at each other
    And say
    How is it we ended up down here at the bay?
