I pulled a muscle last night
swimming vigorously
after a day sat and a long walk
the seaweed swamped me
and these murky waters stung in my eyes
you dive down and find freezing zones
where crabs are scared to move
where the pier can be peered at
sunken and waving
the markers that sit up above the waves
rock with every slop of
the atlantic rolling onto our shores
you come up with tentacles round your face
