DROWNING IN A GLASS OF WATER
(12/7/17)

you
are not
adrift alone
in an angry
sea

you are
safely within
the most familiar
of environs

plagued
by barely
perceptible
hints
of distress

you
are not
dying

at least
no more
than the rest
of us

you are
quite
fine

really
you are

hush
now

life
is so good
if you let it
be
