You begged to go swim –
deeply, of the fish and ocean.
So slowly with the rising of the tide
we sank to our knees, dancing
for reasons of know, knowing.
We had a love house
flooded plains, hidden from
the fat eyed women and flat capped men
who sat outside, beside their view of life
tongues, of debased woe.
Remember when they found us, seaweed
rolled – with hair a mess and features
Didn’t I say – we needed to rise
but instead we kept on dancing
far beyond those fields of
golden, swaying daffodils…
