Commandments

Bright blues.
 Sea shorn by flecks of gold.
  Drown here. Make like a bottle
   & swallow my stories. Float
    unto shores I will never run,
   reach, or erode.
  Open. At the neck. Sing.
                   Something
baptismal
                    but without any tales
not evident in the blood.
  Not for nothing. I bleed
 for you. Believe in me.
I bleed.
