when you are a very small child and a wave knocks you over

Updated: Aug 21, 2019



when you are a very small child and a wave knocks you over


breathless limblessness

salt water insides


water holds you how air doesn’t.

now you knock down your own self,

and learn to be you and be the water too

which takes a different kind of strength.
