... adrift ...

am the plastic bottle  
adrift in the ocean  

won't disintegrate  
any
time  
soon  
 
home  
to a film  
of slime  
inside  
and out  
 
the cap  
was twisted  
and  
discarded  
long before the journey  
 
some lips  
did touch me  
once  
 
and then  
the violent half crushing  
and throwing off  
overboard  
 
am the plastic bottle  
adrift in the ocean  
 
too toxic  
for land and sea  
yet blending in  
with the shimmering waves  
 
 
 
 
 
 
.
