Expanse of dark blue Channels fill like valves of the heart I’m a little afraid wading through the deep toes dragging in silt I begin to pray with words more breath than voice verbalized with a tributary language Want to turn back, but sludge sucked up with current clouds bravado Smooth surface reflects the glow of truth disguised by the dark slick of night Momentum imagined paralyzed Courage clothed only in fictional strength lost to the spin of tides This visible heart, compared to leaves saturated and closely resembling dead animals bloated with want of yesterday
