Swan Dive

By: Suzanne S. Rancourt


northern cross

Cygnus

boat raft bridge

across the milky way of white foam

milk

milk

blood

a

mouth

is

never

too

old

to

laugh

salt in linens

smell the sun

crisp

invigorate

even when the horse flies land

drive their spikes into flesh

everybody’s got to eat

trust

falling

into

existence





abundance already here already in us it feels

that good

when fear

lets go
