sub

a waterhole grows and you bail
and the faster you go
the faster it goes through the hole
into the hold that once held fast
you release the ballast
the last that you had
and the water comes up
and the inner tube pump
is submerged
and you breathe through a straw
that’s only so long
and you long for the turn
that you passed
not so long ago

So long.
