Watch the shadows lengthen
and the sea grow dark.
–Patrick McGrath  Dr. Haggard’s Disease, p.67

no, the water is warm
she swims alone
where seaweed tangles
her healing lasts
but for a time.

lost -again
in a moment
she switches back
to a growing vine
that twists her mind
to only let go
when things drift -along

no, the water is warm
she swims alone
where seaweed tangles
her healing lasts
but for a time.
