Under the Sea


I know these depths

I’ve plumbed them over and over

Inky currents

seeping into my pores

Toxic, but comfortable there

Sometimes I’ll find buoyancy, start to rise to the top

It’s warmer there

But slinky tendrils from the depths entwine my ankles

Slip down

down

down

Toes squish in mud

Black tendrils squeeze harder

And I’m stuck
