X Diary 05 Time To Go - Poem by Stewart McKenzie

We walk as if on weakening ice
Above a great darkness.
Dancing is - difficult
When the ice is thin.

Hey listen!
There's a light below the ice.

“Let go!
The water's fine for drowning,
And there’s music in the deep.”

Fishes of light
Part the banded water
In turning eddies of song.
