i don’t want to use this metaphor
because this isn’t about that


i don’t think these waters were
meant to be traversed without
some central point of grounding joy

and maybe i’m not looking in the right places

though i’ve worked so hard not to
tie myself to the obvious

for all the storms and the
refusal to sink

i missed
having an
in this world.
