father mother sister brother. swimming near.
inside the ocean is our memory. it moves
as do our thoughts, as our desire also does.
taste the salt that remembers us.
there is a cradle rocking us in our sleep.
when awake we see the color blue. no reason
why that attraction is a familiar face.
we long for that embrace, those thirsting lips.
when the difference between inside and out
was no drought of imagination. drink,
that was within reach of our stride.
be filled, be full. carry the world in water,
in our two arms.
