Izzy Leslie

to go swimming with you
drifting into aquarian space
floating, baby toe brushes pebbles
how do you feel immersed in wet?
you used to Jerk at summer camp
while i took bong rips from a Sobe bottle
there’s no place to rest in water
more nurturing than our own bed
cradled lovingly in displacement
