Aquatic Visual

Aquatic Visual

Where do we want to swim?
The clarity
of the South Pacific reef
is only matched 
by the artificial pool
contained in protective concrete, 
and the cold spring,
permeating up 
from the stone, 
while the predators 
hide in the murky mix 
of the storm churned ocean 
and the rolling mud river 
waiting to gaff 
and pull us together 
from the surface; 
a savior with teeth 
releasing us 
from the boundaries of flesh.

-Robert L. Jackson III
