WITH THE FISHES
(10/1/10)


cooling water
covering me
soothing me
loving me
more completely
than any
other

not breathing
not fretting
now floating
now drifting
always dreaming
toward my
mother

letting go
letting be
dim sunlight
losing me
sinking below
ocean blue
to brown

not unfair
not a care
my demise
fills my eyes
setting me free
lost at sea
unfound

darkness comes
thoughts all fade
cold benumbs
truth pervades
finally caught
not fraught
with woe

killing done
corpse asleep
I've become
quietly deep
ever resting
jesting
no more
