(ˈrɪpˌtaɪd  )
a current opposing other currents, producing violently disturbed water; especially the strong, narrow flow of outbound sea water that competes with the avalanche of incoming waves on the shore

Loss comes over the body like a riptide. There is some relief from swimming with it. Wind pulls patterns on the surface tension. The lens of the eye shuttles between blur and focus. Sound bubbles in the ears like liquid thunder. Three words repeat: trust the water.
