remembered things forgotten

the giant river came to destroy me when i was nine years old

it was swallowing everything whole

it was a tsunami

so i became the earth

so i became the wind and rain

i became the tsunami and the mixing of trash and silt

i am the sun

coronal mass ejection

interstellar space cloud

layers upon layers

forgotten things remembered

remembered things forgotten

it swallowed everything whole

 when i wanted it to stop

it stopped, 

when i wanted it to start 

it started again

they grabbed on to it for what seemed like forever

what seemed like a split second

and then they too were thrown off by something larger

something they couldnt see
the giant river came to destroy me when i was nine years old
it was swallowing everything whole
it was a tsunami
so i became the earth…
