if tenderness
is oxygen
 
then
 

i am

submerged—
adrift in
a quivering sea of
obscurity;
 
i was
hand over hand
overhandoverhand
 
 
until
 
i wasn’t.  
 
until
 
your apathy
set my lungs
on fire.
 
until
salty surrender.
 
drifting, 
drifting—
 
i have
become a
seagrass of
slights
in this
opaque, puddled
darkness
 
i inhale,
i exhale
your briny disdain.
