  • Sitting on the sole dry tile
    facing the dark waters
    a crouch seems to be the perfect position
    to hold my thoughts this night
    A fish turns on its side in the distance
    water crashes against water
    we plunge in together.

    I wake up at six in the morning
    I take this picture in the drizzle
    I step back in
    My mother watches me pass her by

    I go back to sleep.
