    The Refraction Of Water

    Not knowing how to swim
    I became an expert
    at diving in

    and swimming under water
    (oh I could do that)
    for a width
    and then
    another width back

    reaching for the safety of the bar as if it were
    Life itself
    even pushed it so far
    (I held my breath)
    took to swimming lengths
    underwater
    the danger and the fear of death
    became the thrill of it

    lost in a soundless universe
    living only on that one breath
    my shadow like a soul distorted
    accompanying me on the bottom
    like a dolphin

    ///Time///broken///
    in the refraction
    of water.
    Although I never learned
    to swim

    I became an expert
    in not drowning.

    ***

    IN AN OCTOPUS’S GARDEN WITH YOU

    We play about
    in the pool
    (act the fool)

    not swimming – playing.

    I swim underwater
    for a length

    before passing underneath
    your wide open legs.

    You thrill to the touch
    as I softly brush
    your inner thighs
    with my curly hair.

    You laugh & cry:

    “Again…again! ”

    This time you
    untying the little ribbons & bows
    of your tiny bikini bottoms

    giving me
    a glimpse

    of Heaven here
    on earth
    (under water)

    my lungs on fire
    gasping for breath

    come up

    clenched in my teeth
    your little yellow
    polka-dot bikini bottoms

    only to find your top
    like a jellyfish

    scurrying away on
    the surface.

    your nakedness
    split in two

    by the refractive index
    of the water.

    “Come here! ”
    you sneer

    “I’ve got something
    I want to

    show you! ”

    You sure
    show me. read more »

    Does a Fish go Pee?

    Does a fish go pee
    when it's swimming in the sea?
    Does it ever get the notion
    when it's swimming in the ocean? read more »

    Not Swimming But Crawling! (Don't Laugh)

    Riding on back of pride
    I declared I will learn swimming at any cost
    I know my mind was just shivering on the very thoughts of swimming
    How can I let anyone know of my weakness read more »
