Radiance versus Ordinary Light (a poem)

[…]

“We dive in and, as usual,

                                                     the swimming

feels like that swimming the mind does in the wake

of transgression, how the instinct to panic at first

slackens that much more quickly, if you don’t

look back.

   […]

‘the waves beat harder, hard against us, until that’s

how we like it, I’ll break your heart, break mine.”
