Deep

I’m standing in a foot of water,
Trying to be deep-

But all I can do is drown. 

And if I say-

Thank you for inspiring me to breathe,

You take that as an invitation to save me and I find myself filling the pool a little bit more so that I can hold you under and watch you save yourself-

First. 

I don’t understand the question. 

My head cannot swim around it and my thoughts cannot nail it down in place long enough to swim around the answer-

It offends me. 

Perhaps I have lived poorly. 

Or was poorly lived. 

A

Life

Poorly

Lived. 

Is that even a life? Is there a better question?

The answer is, you’re right. I’m lonely and nothing feeds and nourishes this intellectual-

Gap. 

Chasm. 

I am standing in a foot of water, and I’m trying to be deep-

But all I can do is toss pebbles that sink like rippleless stones.

Nothing I do seems to go out-

It just drowns within.
