Fifty Sixth Day

–For Blake

Fifty Sixth Day

Last night I had a dream.
You were floating in a pool,
a shallow one, fabricated with
sapphire and copper tile. We were
all there with you. You seemed in a rush,
uncomfortable and turning over and over in
the water. Back, Front,
back, front.
Then, we synchronized. My arm lifted with yours
and everyone else’s moved with mine. We stretched our
arms over our heads, reaching for you, pulling the heaviness
through our bodies and bringing it to settle over our chests. Sinking
ourselves, like thick black rocks, while your body lifted out and over and
finally separated from any water at all. Then we tried to wash the obese black
rocks from our skin only to realize they had settled in our bellies, making the washing
exhausting. Now it is us at the bottom, watching through underwater eyes, this haze of you
lifting
lifting
lifting.
