Shrink into the Skies and Seas

Wollongong Beach, New South Wales

My last tankard is emptied and the barrel

goes dry, but here I still am, to drink

my life to the lees. 

I crawl my way home and my tidiest apparel 

is soiled, and there I am, at the brink

of my life that flees. 

And as I lie spread-eagled, my last stairwell 

awaits, and I am everywhere, only to shrink 

into the skies and seas.
