by Brittany Cagle

Brackish water washed over
the tips of his feet as
the current drew
him violently in,
until he swirled
with the grasses
beneath the black water,

The landscape blurred into a string
of air bubbles and distant
strangers only saw that
quick blur of silver ripples.

I was dreaming somewhere in the distance,
with my friend sinking
the moonlit surface.
