To Swim

This contract? It ends
I don't wait for men
It's now, that was then
I woke up, I win
I've learned how to swim

Significant Other

God is my partner, so please understand -
I'll never be tethered to woman or man
I won't play a part and I don't meet demands
Unless they're my own and on ground that I stand
I keep neither cuffs nor a ring on my hand
I do all I want and whatever I can
Alone is illusion - I know who I am:
Supported and courted according to plan


Like sediment sinks
Slow down and rethink
Don't settle, but sleep
Awaken in peace
A wind will upheave
Expand and release
As ripples, you reach
Wash, rinse, and repeat

Weather harsh, window sill
Ants are art - do not kill
Shopping cart, poison pill
Put it down, please be still
Fall apart, wait until...
Watch us start, see our skill
Follow heart, with free will -
We are smart - we rebuild
