i will never drown, darling -
the summer moon will carry me
beyond the abyss within the great sunken layers
.lies the answer
a small blossom’s heart born
of all things yellow, warming frost-
bitten feet perpetually treading water.
(ice (lava) rock)
and the sunlit foam kisses the warrior’s shores ...
i will never drown again darling, and you,
you, will float on.
