“How to Continue in These Waters”

By Catherine Moon Masters

This feeling of
being half-under
the turbulent waters
of this human
it’s no simple
thing to explain.

I yearn to crack
my ribcage open–
like one would
a fruit of passion
a clam, calmly
blue and abiding–

so that my tender
insides would lie
open and soft-pink
in the sun and wind.

For some intangible
She knows that
this is the way
to continue
in these waters

without fear.
