a dying ocean

i hold the shell to my ear
to hear the ocean, but
she remained quiet
on the other side of the line
i continued to listen for
a sign, and she said
you have your own voice,
i can’t lend you any more
of mine because someday,
sometime in the future,
nothing will be left of me
i’ll have vanished into
the divine
