undertow tanka sequence



undertow


there are blows in life so
powerful we just succumb 
and the water 
pours in through our mouths
and out of our ears

and there are things we see
just before drowning
mountains, daisies
rivers, and the bodies
of the people we had been

and the bodies 
of the people
we had loved
and we wonder why
we were born human
