Let’s Jump (Day 685)


Let’s jump 
off the other side 
of the wall 
that keeps us where 
they say 
we should stay
because we know 
in our bones 
we are almost 
home now 

Let’s allow 
our hearts 
to swim among 
lingering stars and
to find 
the remembered 
spaces where 
our fingers 
used to fit 

Let’s dive 
so the deep 
green water closes 
over our heads 
as we sink 
hair snaking 
Medusa-like toward 
the undulating surface 
secret weeds tickling  
our ankles 
sending us shrieking 
toward the light
