Let’s Turn Liquid

It’s upon these waters
that we bow and break

and it’s upon these days
that we warm our bellies

staggering
knees bent
beneath sky and sun

and it’s between
these currents
that we make
our days

you choke and I spit
amongst waters and

their unknown depths and
I think I heard you say,

“Which way?”
before the waters pulled
and you sank

and I replied,

“Every which way,”

“Directionless
we are
never lost.”
