Fish Pose


Your spine curves as you move through the water:
What does your skin sense of your surroundings?
What does it know of your own heartbeat and blood?
What does it know of the creatures passing nearby?

How close to the surface do you dare to swim?
How is your view of the beyond distorted by the surface?

How deep will you go?
Have you ever touched bottom?

Can you reach a shore in your lifetime?
Or do you circle the same smooth path, returning on the hour?
What do you remember?

What can eat you?

Are you alone? Alone in a crowd?
Are you pulled against the current by a love of something?

If you relax, where will the current take you?
What will be waiting for you?
