language & drowning

Bodies buoyant

When cast overboard

Luggage lost at sea

Water in my lungs.

Pools, hot and cold

Hot tea to soothe a turning stomach—

Sea salt

Salt to sanitize

Prayer prescribed to pain.

Gasping for air

My rock solid composure

Above water and drowning

Water erodes rock.
