I thrive on feeling safe
because of it, I wallow in the shallows
tolerating, bending over, settling
accepting the bottomness

done.

I’ve stood and stand at the edge of
which way, smelling the water’s rise
the shallows recede with their thick undulating debris
I habitually follow
clinging closely even to the geological shoreline of real space, real history
wading in the laden muck

a turbulent violence plays out in these shallows
at the fluctuating threshold of sea

move.

toward and away
even in the cling

now.
for god’s sake let go
