This selection, chosen by Guest Curator H.V. Cramond, is from The Water Cycle by Variant Lit in 2022.
The second time you almost drowned I wasn’t there to stop you, at the
edge of a frog pond while the grownups downed shots of
whiskey, stars croaking & water lullabying you with the promise of
cotton candy or infinity when you sank like sunlight. The first time you
almost drowned, I turned my back to help your sister cross the tangle
of crab claws & seaweed & fishing lines to the spot where babies can
float & when I turned again a yellow circle bobbed against my feet.
