In no concept of time
my inner song silenced
when I was displaced
from earthen roots -
limb torn...

Imbedded now in
silted lake bed
two thirds submerged
waterlogged in depth
of darkness...

Nightmares , fear
of fully drowning
brachial artery
just breaking surface -
hungry for air...

Footsteps above
carry sound of voices
I want to sing the
song of the Selkie
draw them down...

Stones thrown
from the bridge
sink alongside me
I will rot, slowly
slowly I will rest...
