and the world

and the world breaks open

crash it down

the drowning will stop

it must stop

drift side to side

head under water

raise your arms

lift them up

lift them to the sky

look

search again

for sunlight

for clouds without rain

in a blue sky

hands tread water

feet kicking out

this way and that

remember to breathe

just one breath

one

then

then

life

comes after.
