What I Heard

You left your sneakers in the pool
When I died I heard them sinking
Like a rock no longer skipping
A girl no longer swimming.
You left them untied; open ended
Like a broken lock
Hearing each turn of the key
When your toes curl in the wet
I can hear them sinking
By twos that is-
Falling under like a child
Hiding under sheets in a thunderstorm
Drowning together
Without a breath that is-
Like a mouse in a trap
And a lip with no kiss
Failing to sense 
The light above
No movement, no minutes
Just mute
Like when I died I heard 
My shoes sinking
Under the blunder of blue.
