Day 2: April Poem-a-Day

Prompt: Write a voyage poem

“Jonah Me”

Have you ever been thirsty in the middle of the ocean?

It’s a long story 
how I got here
in the belly of this whale
in a sea of corporate urchins
But here’s the short version

I heard a voice
I had a calling
But I ran
I made a choice
I was stalling
And I swam
Then I sank
And was swallowed
God?
Damn
Now I’m waiting
And I’m praying
For dry land
I am wet
I am salty
But I am certain
In my belly
Of who I am
