Drowned


I have drowned twice. I was in third grade the first time.

The initial gasp appeared as if i was suffering but i slowly drifted,
as a feather in the air,
an angelic peace surrounded me down there.

A girlfriend’s brother brought me to the surface. Then i was 41.
i flailed for 8 years and still gasp for air.
many have tried to resuscitate
but i am brain dead.
i survive on driftwood.
