as for living
i made my choice
stepped out of the circle,
jumped into the windswept sea.
it might not seem like much,
not right now,
but i paid attention
when i had swimming lessons
and i am sure
i can stay afloat.
now i’m off to
distant shores
which i can’t see yet

and just in case it gets too hard
i still have
my floaties –
so i can
take a break
and study
the lay of the land… or sea.
