Swimming in the Cosmic Pool

In beaming dull sunset…

Shooting the new dryads

And thud goes the green body

Once…

Shimmering with youth

Now limp and wrinkled,

Propelled by Gilded tides…

Upswept

Climbing waters drowning

His hollow screams,

Screwing faucets on backwards—

Eroding, Watery excess…

Lungs afloat,

His body a shriveled towel

All soggy and crinkled,

Encrusted with smell of oxygen yesterday,

He is returned to that dry place,

He once abandoned…

To be the fastest swimmer…

Only to be squirted

 

A hardened spongy mess.
