The way I wish to die is to completely be eaten up and taken away by the sea. I’d only wish for this to happen at the speed of its vacuum so that I may only feel and not think. I would like to be surprised, and my body pulled from its consciousness down deep to the lowest parts of the corals. Raw, soft bits of my flesh will then release from the bone and surface the water to become ripe food for the birds and dropped back into the earth through their bowels continuing to be enriched through the dietary tracks of earthworms for the soil. I do not want any organized funeral, nor do I want any of my remains to remain as my human once did.
