Something like me and You

Written by: Jessica Goldstone

I want us to swim,
In our new bodies,
Which buttress our boney disproportion.

I want the fish to be enticed,
By our old skins
Which serve as useless armour to this world.

I want the cold to be unrelenting,
To our restless hearts,
Which beat  inaptness into our beings.

I want the water to cleansing
Towards our tomblike wombs
Which welcome love but  reject life.

 I want the tides to be shifting,
Until our spineless existence
Take the form of something solid,
Something soft.
Of something like me and You.
