  • The Flood

    Two-thirds of earth, and most of us, is water.
    Come life, come death's black, fathomless water.

    At the mirror I try to picture the soul.
    I raise my cupped hands, full of water.

    And think of my birth: the scalpel, my mother’s
    skin parting like a sea of red water.

    In the dream of the flood I'm always the one
    looking back, turning into a pillar of water.

    I drag a stick through my reflection: there lies
    another, whose name is written in water.
