Fluid

by Marcus Tan

I would like to drown
in the tides that creep
along your shores. I
am alive and well, but

I would like to drown; I
would like to choke as
my lungs fill with water. I
would like to be distant

from dryness of land; I
would like to be baited and
gutted as a little fish. I
would like to be washed

ashore as a beached whale, I
would like to feel fluid and
free as the water that
runs in me.
