RACING INTO OUR FUTURE

We walk backward
out of the sea

our laughter gulped
back in our mouths

our words
drifting back down the past

until they are only
the original thoughts

our clothes falling
back on our bodies

as water falls from us
un-wets us

here I
pause

then press play

the memory obeying
my mind’s command

as we happen again &
again

racing into our future

as if it has

never happened

yet.
