Drowning I am

I dreamed I was walking on the shore

sand in my toes and ripples of tide

washing my feet.


Drowning I am

Surreal light shines on the waves.

I am caught in the grip of inertia

hands and arms locked.


Drowning I am

a flat bottomed boat waits

to receive me

but where is the ferryman ?
