Existence, 2018

In darkness and concealment

My arms are tired, I swim

across the sea for you

duck under waves, kick murk and weeds

out of the tangle you began

in a white landscape.

Yellow dog by your crib.

I’ve known you since then,

and now I swim in closer to the island

of you.

(from a work-in-progress, Deathnight Review)
