prospect of/a drowning

discombobulate fin and snorkel
briny breath apparatus
conceit i/concede
it was to mean true too be to

how to see the fishes like that?
scudding sudden schools
exploding rings
rolling water skipping/stones

perpetual waves weight
upset me and bait and
lure underfoot proves
my/person most precarious

there goes the sun cast
sea tenebrous roil
spooled and unknowable
as you are

aye! come on in
it’s no fun alone swimming
what if i see a big one who/am i
to show it to?

who will believe me? oh
i see i/think
