Head Above Water
There is a world below the surface,
under smiles and affirmative nods, voyages
launched in darkness, in solitude.
Gather your clan, your circle of strays but
hold tight to your heart. The unforgiving
hide in every home’s corner.
Stick to your path mapped in scattered spores.
Trudgen through blue, to the truth in the center
of virgin growth, to the end you never saw coming.
