Fish out of water

| Disqus Comments


No one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark ~Warsan Shire

there is no home
at the other end of this.
another step, and those never end,

or being pulled along
in the current,
or pushed by fear,

blood in the water.
there can be no destination,
only out of here

around the next bend
and the next, and the next—
no wonder you take the leap

out of faith, out of ken,
a shoal on the shore, drowning
in all the freedom of air.

Christmas, 2015
