Water World

Water World

The gray world, the inside of a palm

cupping the surface of a still pool

a world of water enclosing on me

it’s seeking victim

dive in, surrounded by something unnatural

this buoyant liquid I find my time through

sift into and become entranced with

like the willow tree’s soft arms

hairy branches at the bayou covered in moss

curly angel hair

the world when I was a child

only as large as I could see.
