Newest Piece

I came home from class last night and wrote a new piece.  I think it’ll fit nicely inside my chapbook.

The Current

You are my current

so tired of swimming against you

pulling, pulling

each time a stroke to nowhere

I could turn around

let go

limbs limp, a cadaver—

you’ll sweep me where

I’ve already been
