An Invitation to a Drowning

an invitation to a drowning

written by: Jax NTP



limbs slice cold water
cerulean sea foam green
boy on winter day
swimming to/from clarity
reasons need not a logic

what will be will be
earth’s rotations stop for none
arabesque sunset

inhale bravery
a dive to exhaust the now
water reflecting
vertigo – exhale – his body
drapes itself into the rush
