Drowning in the Pool


Drowning in the Pool

The blue barracuda
makes crossing
waves in the water
which echo
but don’t follow
the grid of
the blue nylon net
whose shadow
makes a deeper
lattice that shudders
within the gridded
foci of sunlight
shining through
the clear waves
onto the blue
floor of the pool
intercepted by the
shadows of leaves
from the green
bamboo plant and on
the intersecting ripples
the leaves themselves
drift on the surface
tension that sucks
towards the mouth
of the leaf-skimmer
stretching out the
reflection of the
pool-blue sky.
