The Drop Off

darkest bend ’round
deepest end never really
seemed that dark
or deep,

until a shallow friend of old
cowered in darkest bend,
round same corner’s
flooded end
,

just beyond where my
outstretched life-vest
could reach,

clearly, i can learn
a lesson, but i lack
the chops to
teach
,

and the depth
of breath to
speak.
