Somewhere in the middle of an ocean
bobbing in the waves, there is a man
who’s watched the discovery channel
enough to know that the scrape on his foot
means that he won’t drown

Sometimes it’s good to list
the things I’m thankful for
to remember that life
isn’t all the depressing thoughts
that become regulars in my mind

Some days my list is smaller than others
today, I will start my list with the fact
that no sharks will dismember me this week
barring some unforeseen ocean voyage and accident.
