The Dive

Control the precipice
the flags are exhausted
in the air, entwined one being

We move down together
we meet the surface
I’ll take you with me
I’ll bring you along
through our twisted arc,
through the picture we form,
as we blend and crush the water.

Lean heavily forward
Wipe the sweat from my brow
and rest before
beginning again.

It was only the beginning
It was never an end

More than simple standing,
it destroys the tension
and makes a new movement
in the moment, we are one
to go forward, to start
with no glance back,
no sight behind or to the sides
but simple direction.

Lean against the rail,
lift my heavy feet
Rest will cure the wounds
and then begin again
