Deep End

No indication of a struggle
here on the glasslike surface
of this pink September morning
but I’m looking for a lifeboat
that resembles the shape of an airplane
that can drop me off on some unpopulated island
where the language is silence, and spoken fluently,
and unlike home, it would be impossible to drown
before you step foot in the shallow water.
