Beach Trip After Your Funeral


by Ryan-Sally June

You were there
when my body was in suspension
in the salt waters

You were there in the comforting lull
of waves
teaching me to relax, trust, as the current took me back
to safer grounds

You were there when
I looked over the dark
sky and sea and in the breeze
that filled my

You were there
in the conflagration
and the
congregation that came around it
in their laughs
in their dance and songs
in their drunken mistakes.
