In the Water
I love the weightlessness of water
hold my breath to balance out the tension.
In the water, I can rip the iron bars off my shoulders
I can forget the hunger pains
I can distract the wars at home
I can muffle the sounds of world riots.
I am not lonely. the water is alone.
In the water, it all dissolves, drifts, disappears
even I. unaware of my own physical inhibitions.
In the water I float loosely
hair in tangles, arms outstretched.
