Asleep In The River

If you let yourself hang,
Just long enough,
Under the water—
It's not too difficult...

You wait.
Letting it tangle your hair
Ripple along your skin,
Until you are covered with

Green river moss.
And you can't feel the tug on
Your lungs anymore-
Until your skin melts away

Into the water,
And you become,
Just a current that flows,
Just a ripple of cool liquid

That goes
On and on
For a million miles
Of stream, and river, and ocean

Of lake, and pond, and marsh.

Just stay,
Until you forget how to float,...
