[poem] Refraction (After Tracey Rowledge’s “Surface”

(thank you Tracey Rowledge and Jerwood Space)

Staring at the refraction of myself
Deciphering its message,
All the shimmering blackness
Shines! Headfirst into its
Murk, tumbling in space,
Floating tarpits
Surround. I search
For clarity. I am
Drowning in your scratches.
I find your hand,
Hold you for a second
Then let you go, seeing
If we will fall or fly.
Seeing if your face
Will be there
As I break surface
Coming up for air.
