“You can’t keep me from drowning if it’s what I choose”



“You can’t keep me from drowning if it’s what I choose.”


your voice is an osprey’s
plunge
to catch a fish.

The answer of nests
on telephone poles.
The blue lilt of my sigh,

on this kayak
slapped by the sea, I tilt.

At the last gulp of salt water:

my stubbornness
a hammerhead
circling
a vortex
buoys me up
into the day’s
long light.

slap my silver
self on board,
ungaffed
and gasping--
