#2,364 Finding Us

Mike Bell/ March 28, 2022/ www.mikebellpoems.com/ 0 comments

Our primary motivation
is to find meaning in all
of this as we sink into a
pool without reflection –
How deep does it go? A
drowning follows down
as breath is replaced by
lake water – a thin soup
served cold – darkening
under glassy light – less
too sensible at lowered
metres – such a drop – a
fall in temperature [as if
passing chiller cabinets
in a shop] – We will sink
if not shown new ways
to swim – simple math –
There is a truth in facts
that every relationship
will conclude via death
or one leaving – truisms
will lift a soul’s weight –
raise us from a cold silt
as it shackles our heels
