“The Reef”

Alone in the reef-

The strain of time begins to wear on my flayed nerves.

The sweltering sun beats upon my frayed mind.

Fat flies buzz above my head, seemingly awaiting my impending demise.

I long to shed this disguise.

Swatting these pests has become a strenuous task.

Lack of sustenance has led to a hallucinations.

A sip of water,

A taste of beef.

There is nothing here in the reef.
