your shadow
leaves the door frame

black-tic-tac-sun glass- mad-sen


but eery


double exposure
to swim out to
the skull mid ocean
where you,
wear your bathing suit
which is
mid drift-a mind set-adrift

this moment
thought provoking-sal-vaged-dali-dollar-ama priced

fixed and ready
the diving board
quang-up and down-two feet-two times
then faith, eyes closed
leap up leap forth
forward, down
into the deep
pencilled in imagination

the unknown
