Loch Ness


Leaping of the edge of the cliff

A swimmer's grace in my swan dive

Fully committed

As I hit the plane of shimmering clear

Something unnatural happens

Hitting hard in crumble of my bones

I fail to submerge,

     or even break the surface

Rejected by liquid coherency

As if i jumped into a pool whose water was previously drained

The Matron of the lake refuses to embrace me into her bosom

I lay on the surface, bloodied, like some twisted Jesus

The intense volleys of pain electrifying my body makes it impossible to fathom this apparent miracle

In the reflection of a bruised face

I need to know what the fuck I am

After the fall there is only crawling


Slithering my way to shore

Snake-like with tendons no longer connected

I scratch my way foreword as random fingernails chip off

There is little give in the gravity of my delirium

Finally inching my way to a square of concrete

In my weakened state, lacking strength of movement

Throwing my self on to the plateau in a feeble roll

Then a second unnatural phenomenon occurs

I drown into cement
