Fluidity by Daniel Edward Moore
I write water.
I drown my appointments
with the sea.
The shoreline’s violent shift
in mood refuses explanation
as nothing blue appears torrential
in a fallen footprint.
There are those for whom a ball
of spinning dust is bliss
for whom the thought of writing water
means the mind has lost its key
in the ground’s garage.
But I write water.
I tell the sun
drink me & be done.
