sitting in this leaky boat called ‘me’

136

sitting here
swaying
in this leaky boat
called ‘me’

a dull wet day
dawning
sleep-smeared eyelids
drooping
knocked-about knee
hurting
cheeky bird-chirps
smiling
gracious curve of frond
greening

loving these leaky cracks
the way they open
just enough to let me seep
through
out of
mind’s moorings
and
into
ocean-womb-I
