Darkening Passage MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   I look up

at the soft grace of a white bird

yet trapped.

Hundreds of feet of blue and white flashes of light

ascend me

and my head crushes at the pressure.

My eyes begin to cloud,

much like water, polluted by the

mud I kicked up.

The salt water tickles my tongue like candy

or at least my distorted mind

makes me think it tastes so.

Ears are ringing

life begins to collapse.

The bird blurs

into a bright, white light.

With the taut line from a

striped white and red buoy grasping my ankle,

I surface

floating face down.
