The Weight of Water

Can you fly through clouds of rain?

Or does the

weight of water





Show me how

to keep my words struggling

against the beat of the drum

Despite all my improvised melodies

I am still a slave

to the same incessant


I will not lose myself to find you

let me be tempted instead by

the snow resting a moment on my eyelashes

the anticipation of heat against my skin

Seduce my mind into drowning

Who is tormenting whom?
