WORDS

MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH

You know better than to swim alone. But something leads you out.

The water out here feels just like breath. So cool upon your skin.

It’s a matter of life and death.

 

You shouldn’t have been out there so late at night. But Rudy likes to see the boats.

Turned your head for one second’s time. Now the tears roll down your throat.

 

There’s no punishment. There’s no hate. Just the wind upon the seas.

A hunger burns in everything. All wounds heal by degrees.

 

Moving quiet through a moonless night. Slipping through the dark.  

I know you’re up ahead. Zero in upon your scent.
