Pressing the stretched
Surface of water
Skimming across
The overture

Hydroplane vision

Who you are
Who you were
Who you can be

Fear from
Fun & flatter

All the niceties
Erased by
All the deliberate

All that isn’t
Is the rise
& fall of

Some of us
Were meant
To wait

& seldom told
We’re worth anything

Under the weight

The crash of
Deliberate death

You killed me
Over & over again
