Hook, Line, and Sinker (You and I)

There’s a place for you and I
somewhere in the depth
beneath
our miraculous floating feet

just as soon as we drop
the anchor of good faith

Maybe if we fashion a raft
of words and fallacies
tied down
with knotted desperation
we’ll make it

or at least drift a few days more.

Reciprocated guesses
and salt-dried kisses
as we cling and breathe in

and choke on wild sprays
of inevitability.

We’re keen swimmers
but not quite broad
enough
to sustain the magnified rivulets

And it’s common knowledge
that if we try to float
with our bodies
in inverted synergy

we will both
sink

So let us drift
to oceanic echelons

and our flash-scaled neighbors
will dream in our place.
