A Flick of the Light

From the collection published in 2021, The Immediate and No Sooner.

A Flick of the Light

tread water
deep end of the pool
tiny tiles
wavering
on the bottom twelve feet down
my feet languid wraiths

my hands clouds
who float me. The gloom
descending
I hover
in it with it above it
A fish breathing air

  1. Thank you. That’s exactly how I feel in the water, out of body, and on a summer day when the water ripples and sparkles and the shadows float across the bottom of the pool, I just love it.
