He plays the rubber ducky of the century
swims, curse, brattle, curse
she skips every
beat of a chance
to withdraw from
the unknown
and every unknown
she held tight.
tightly.
choking.
like a passing flow of
breeze
like the stretch of
unearthened brass
claypot
and before the
thin slip of
white reads ends
I tell the truth
tell every truth

life itself
is a pond
full of
rubber duckies.
