ONE DOES NOT WHOLLY DIE, by                
First Line: Foam lashes stone
Last Line: Pulsing with the water-lap.

Foam lashes stone
to wafer-disc to lie
on other stone to be
its strength
against the sea's continuity.
Waves lave the wafer-disc
to cerise and magenta mist,
lapping up its identity.

A man buffeted by magenta foam,
losing his identity
with damaged stone,
is not content to stop;
but dream-driven, fuses
with the immensity...
pulsing with the water-lap.
