Body of Water

Back stroke
Breast
Stroke
Scissor kick
dive

Butterflied
on the deep sea
bed
Rolling with the in and out
tide

Breathing
holding
Breathing
Sliding through

Tumble turned and tangled
in the suck and swell

Drowning now and
pooling
in the silver sleep
or recued
Mouth-to-mouth
revived

everytime
I go
Swimming in you
and your
body of water
